Wye Road is a major arterial road and rural highway that links Sherwood Park from Anthony Henday Drive (Highway 216) on the east side of Edmonton to Highway 14 west of Tofield.[1] It is preceded by Sherwood Park Freeway, and east of Highway 21 is designated as Alberta Provincial Highway No. 630, commonly referred to as Highway 630.[2] Wye Road in Strathcona County, is a historic route from the early 1900s connecting Edmonton to Cooking Lake, parallel to a line of the Canadian National Railway,[3] and it and Highway 630 used to be synonymous for their entire length.[4] In the early 1990s, the portion of Highway 630 east of North Cooking Lake was realigned, resulting in the Highway 630 entering Beaver County and passing through Lindbrook[5] and subsequently paved,[6] while the original gravel route is still designated as Wye Road and links with Highway 14 near Hastings Lake.[7] The portion of Wye Road within Sherwood Park is maintained by Strathcona County and not officially part of Highway 630.[2][8]
