Provincial highways in Alberta

Hwy 14 Hwy 16

Alberta Provincial Highway No. 15[2] is a highway in the Edmonton Region of Alberta. It connects northeast Edmonton to the City of Fort Saskatchewan and communities within Lamont County. It serves as an alternative to Highway 16 that bypasses Elk Island National Park. The highway follows the route of a railway line completed in 1905 by the Canadian Northern Railway.

The highway is designated as a "core route" of Canada's National Highway System, between Highway 16 and the intersection with Highway 28A within the City of Edmonton and is part of the Edmonton-Fort McMurray corridor.[3]

Highway 15[edit]

The highway begins at the intersection of 50 Street and Highway 16 (Yellowhead Trail) in Edmonton. It proceeds north along 50 Street to Manning Drive, where it diverts northeast before passing over Anthony Henday Drive (Highway 216). Before leaving Edmonton, Highway 15 continues northeast past the southern terminus of Highway 28A. Within Sturgeon County, it intersects with the eastern terminus of Highway 37 and then turns southeast to cross the North Saskatchewan River and intersect with the northern terminus of Highway 21 in the City of Fort Saskatchewan. From this junction, Highway 15 travels northeast again and then east, intersecting with Highway 45 and Highway 29. It then turns southeast and passes through the towns of Lamont and Mundare. At the outskirts of Mundare, it begins a 2.1 km (1.3 mi) concurrency with Highway 855 before ending at Highway 16.

Manning Drive is a developing freeway in north-east Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is currently still under construction, with the majority of its intersections at-grade, it retains its arterial road status. It was named after Alberta Premier Ernest Manning (1943–1968) in 1972.[5]

It has formed as a highway, and a better route, to the historic Fort Road, which was a major route connecting Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan. Fort Road has since been destroyed in places to make room for development, and the drive was renamed from Manning Freeway, however some old signs still remain.

Major intersections[edit]

Starting from the south end of Manning Drive.[4] The entire route is in Edmonton.
