The following is a list of the east–west arterial thoroughfares in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Numbered avenues run east-west with street numbers increasing to the north. In 1982 a quadrant system was adopted. Quadrant Avenue (1 Avenue; only constructed west of the river), along with Windermere Boulevard and the south leg of Anthony Henday Drive, dividing the north and south quadrants. Edmonton currently has three quadrants: northwest (NW), southwest (SW), and northeast (NE); the vast majority of the city falls within the northwest quadrant. Addresses on 41 Avenue and south have been encouraged to include NW to avoid confusion with addresses in the SW quadrant.

Prior to the 1982 general annexation, the roadway is within Strathcona County, with the Leduc and Strathcona County boundary following Township Road 510, 3.2 kilometres (2 mi) to the south. As part of the annexation, the strip land west of Range Road 234 (Meridian Street when it leaves Edmonton) was transferred to Leduc County.[2]

Ellerslie Road (or 9 Avenue SW) is a major arterial road in south Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The original rural area was named Ellerslie by early Scottish settlers, and the name was applied to the local school district by 1895.[4] When the rural grid road Township Road 514 was later built, it soon earned the nickname Ellerslie Road.

When the Ellerslie area was annexed by Edmonton in 1982, the City of Edmonton extended its own numbering system to existing roads. The 1982 annexation pushed Edmonton`s boundaries south of 1 Avenue, so the city adopted a quadrant system, renaming Township Road 514 to 9 Avenue SW – though Ellerslie Road has remained the preferred name by Edmontonians.

Since 1999, Ellerslie Road has become a major arterial, serving the significant residential development in the extensive string of neighbourhoods across the Ellerslie area, the Heritage Valley area, the Windermere area and the Southeast Edmonton area of the city. As part of the Windermere Neighbourhood Structure Plan, Ellerslie Road was realigned near 170 Street SW (Terwillegar Drive) and becomes Hiller Road west of the intersection. The bypassed rural road alignment will become a multi use trail.[5]
