Alberta Provincial Highway No. 10X[1] is a spur of Highway 10 that runs for 5.6 km (3.5 mi),[2] connecting Wayne with Highway 10. Following the amalgamation of the former City of Drumheller with the Municipal District of Badlands No. 7 on January 1, 1998,[4] the entire highway falls within the Town of Drumheller.[3] The road follows the course of the Rosebud River through a 100–150 m deep canyon. Nine bridges lead the road from one side of the river to the other, and most of the bridges are paralleled by railroad bridges of a presently abandoned track that used to cart coal from the Wayne mine. At its end, Highway 10X continues as Excelsior Avenue, which crosses the Rosebud River twice more, before splitting into Range Road 195A and Township Road 280A.
