All 240 kilometres of the newly twinned lanes on Highway 63 are open. The $1.2 billion twinning project is part of the Government of Albertas commitment to improving safety, traffic flow and market access for Albertan families and communities. Highway 63 supports a region that makes a tremendous contribution to the economy of both the province and the country, and the expanded infrastructure will make a difference in the daily lives and commutes of the many people who work and live along this corridor.
The final three kilometres of twinned highway was opened in May 2016. The full 240 kilometers of Highway 63 between Grassland and Fort McMurray is now entirely twinned and open to traffic.
