Gateway Boulevard runs in a northbound direction, beginning at the City of Edmonton limits as Alberta Highway 2. It continues past South Edmonton Common as a two-way freeway separated by a median; for this portion, the roadway actually has two names, the southbound Calgary Trail, and northbound Gateway Boulevard. Near 31 Avenue, Calgary Trail and Gateway Boulevard separate and become one-way arterials. Highway 2 continues along Whitemud Drive west, while Gateway Boulevard continues towards the city centre. Calgary Trail (104 Street) and Gateway Boulevard continue to run parallel through Old Strathcona to Saskatchewan Drive, where they end.
Gateway Boulevard was formerly known as Calgary Trail Northbound (south of 55 Avenue) and 103 Street (between 55 Avenue and Saskatchewan Drive), but in 2001, the entire stretch was renamed. Initially, the name change met with some controversy. The name Calgary Trail stood for many years, as this was Alberta's primary highway to Calgary following the rail lines. The rails once crossed Gateway Boulevard to use the High Level Bridge to enter downtown Edmonton, but now end just north of Whyte Avenue. The CPR still has a rail yard serving the industrial district along the east side of Gateway Boulevard.
