Hwy 880 Hwy 882

Alberta Provincial Highway No. 881[1] is a highway in the province of Alberta, Canada. It runs south-north in two sections, from Highway 13 in Hardisty to Highway 55, then from Highway 55 in Lac La Biche to Highway 63 south of Fort McMurray. There is a 72 km (45 mi) break between the two sections, where Highway 55 can be used to join them. Lac La Biche County is lobbying the Government of Alberta to renumber the section of Highway 881 north of Lac La Biche north to Highway 36.[2]

Both sections are entirely paved. This highway is also 49 Street in Hardisty, 53 Street in Irma, 47 Street in Mannville, 50 Street in Myrnam, 40 Street in St. Paul, and 101 Avenue in Lac La Biche.

Future[edit]

In October 2012, the Government of Alberta announced $158 million in funding to improve Highway 881 between Lac La Biche and Fort McMurray, and an additional $150 million in funding for extension of the highway from Anzac to Highway 69 near Fort McMurray.[3]
