Provincial highways in Alberta

Hwy 72 Hwy 93

Alberta Provincial Highway No. 88,[1] also named Bicentennial Highway, is a north-south highway in northern Alberta, Canada.

In the south, Highway 88 begins at its intersection with Highway 2 at the Town of Slave Lake, passing through Red Earth Creek and Fort Vermilion and ending at Highway 58 approximately 57 km (35 mi) east of the Town of High Level. It crosses the Peace River approximately 13 km (8.1 mi) south of Highway 58. The total length of the highway is 427 km (265 mi).


Highway 88 was originally numbered as Highway 67. It was renumbered to Highway 88 and labeled as Bicentennial Highway in 1988 in celebration of 200 years history of Fort Vermilion – one of two communities that claim to be the first European settlement in Alberta (the other being Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabasca to the east).
