The City of Edmonton retained CIMA+, along with Associated Engineering as a sub consultant, for the design development and construction of the Terwillegar Drive Stage 2 project. A priority ladder process was created to help the city decide what the priority components were for their fixed budget. EHan Engineering assisted in facilitating this process.
As a primary roadway in Edmonton, Terwillegar Drive needed improvements to address long-standing congestion issues and commute times. To solve these issues, the City of Edmonton implemented the Terwillegar Drive Program. This three-stage program will improve the Terwillegar Drive corridor between Anthony Henday Drive and Whitemud Drive. In addition to solving congestion and commute times, this project also includes the addition of a dedicated rapid transit lane between Leger/Ambleside transit centres and South Campus LRT station, and more facilities for active transportation users. The CIMA+ lead team, along with Associated Engineering, was retained for the design and development of Stage 2 of this program. This stage focuses on connecting Terwillegar Drive north of 40 Avenue to Whitemud Drive while rehabilitating and widening Whitemud Drive between 122 Street and Fox Drive. The ultimate reconfiguration of the Terwillegar Drive/Whitemud Drive interchange and the rehabilitation and widening of the Rainbow Valley Bridges over Whitemud Creek will improve traffic flow.
CIMA+ received the Project Management Award of Excellence at the 2022 edition of the Consulting Engineers of Alberta Showcase Awards Gala for the Terwillegar Drive Project.
