Provincial highways in Alberta

Hwy 14 Hwy 16

Alberta Provincial Highway No. 15[1] is a highway in the Edmonton Region of Alberta. It connects central Edmonton to the suburb of Fort Saskatchewan and arcs around Elk Island National Park, providing a scenic, although two laned, alternative to a part of Highway 16. The highway follows the route of a railway line completed in 1905 by the Canadian Northern Railway.

Highway 15[edit]

The highway begins at the intersection of 50 Street and Highway 16 (Yellowhead Trail) in Edmonton. It proceeds northeast where it becomes Manning Drive, and sees the south end of Highway 28A and east end of Highway 37. It turns southeast and crosses the North Saskatchewan River and enters Fort Saskatchewan, then meets the north end of Highway 21, where it turns again northeast as 89 Avenue. As township road 554, Highway 45 and Highway 29 (formerly Highway 637) branch out to the northeast. Then, after turning southeast, it passes through the towns of Lamont and Mundare. At the outskirts of Mundare, it begins a 2.1 km concurrency with Highway 855 before ending at Highway 16.

Manning Drive is a developing freeway in north-east Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is currently still under construction, with the majority of its intersections at-grade, it retains its arterial road status. It was named after Alberta Premier Ernest Manning (1943–1968) in 1972.[2]

It has formed as a highway, and a better route, to the historic Fort Road, which was a major route connecting Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan. Fort Road has since been destroyed in places to make room for development, and the drive was renamed from Manning Freeway, however some old signs still remain.

Interchanges and intersections[edit]

Manning Drive currently has 12 interchanges.[3]
