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.[1] 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.
