Hwy 626 Hwy 628

Alberta Provincial Highway No. 627, commonly referred to as Highway 627, is a highway in the province of Alberta, Canada. It runs west to east through rural parts of Parkland County, beginning at Highway 759 about 12 km (7.5 mi) south of Seba Beach and heads due east until terminating at Winterburn Road west of Edmonton.[1] The road continues a short way into Edmonton city limits as Maskêkosihk Trail (/mʌsˈkɡs/) to the ring road Anthony Henday Drive at a folded diamond interchange. Portions of 23 Avenue NW and 184 Street NW between Winterburn Road and Anthony Henday Drive were renamed Maskêkosihk Trail in February 2016 to honour Cree heritage.[2][3]
