Trail connection between Spruce Grove and Stony Plain moving forward

March 10, 2021

The communities of Spruce Grove and Stony Plain are another step closer to a shared trail connection. Spruce Grove City Council approved a motion to move forward with developing the connection during the March 8 Council meeting. This trail will make commuting between the two communities more accessible and safer for those using alternate modes of transportation.

This trail is planned to be located north of Highway 16A, along the future Boundary Road, intersecting with Grove Drive. Work is expected to begin this year, pending budget approval in April. A cost-sharing arrangement is in place, with Spruce Grove committing two thirds of this project and Stony Plain contributing one third.

A motion was also passed during the March 8 Council meeting to begin preliminary work on a second trail connection within the next three years.
