Alberta Provincial Highway No. 14 is an east-west highway through central Alberta. It spans from the City of Edmonton to the Alberta – Saskatchewan border. It runs parallel to the more northern Highway 16.
It begins in Edmonton as Whitemud Drive and at the Calgary Trail / Gateway Boulevard interchange, where it connects with Highway 2. It travels east for 9 km (5.6 mi) along Whitemud Drive until it reaches Highway 216 (Edmonton's outer ring road) and turns south for 2 km (1.2 mi). The highway then turns east and crosses Highway 21 before the divided highway ends west of South Cooking Lake. The highway continues east towards east towards Tofield, where it then turns in a southeast direction, paralleling the main line of the Canadian National Railway, and passes through Ryley, Poe, Holden, and Bruce before intersecting with Highway 36 (Veterans Memorial Highway) in Viking. The highway continues through, Kinsella, Irma, and Fabyan before passing through Wainwright and intersecting with Highway 41 (Buffalo Trail). The highway then travels due east and intersects with Highway 17 before entering Saskatchewan.
Highway 14 used to begin in Old Strathcona at the intersection of 104 Street (Calgary Trail) and Whyte (82) Avenue and followed Whyte Avenue and 79 Avenue out of Edmonton before it was moved to the newly constructed Sherwood Park Freeway in the mid-1960s. Just west of Sherwood Park, Highway 14 branched south for 6 km (3.7 mi) along present-day Highway 216 before it turned east. In the 1980s, Highway 14 was moved to the Whitemud Drive; however it followed 50 Street and Sherwood Park Freeway as at the time Whitemud Drive terminated at 34 Street. In 1999, Whitemud Drive was extended to present-day Highway 216 and Highway 14 was rerouted to its current alignment.
|Length:||3.1 km (1.9 mi)|
Alberta Highway 14X is a former spur of Highway 14 that connected with Highway 16. Located along the present-day Highway 216, it travelled 3.1 km (1.9 mi) from Sherwood Park Freeway to Baseline Road, where the roadway became Highway 16A. In 1996, it was extended north another 3.1 km (1.9 mi) to Yellowhead Trail (Highway 16) by renumbering a portion of Highway 16A, but was then renumbered to Highway 216 in 1999.
