Alberta Transportation is undertaking a Functional Planning Study (FPS) for the upgrading and twinning of Highway 3 from east of Sentinel to west of Pincher Station.
The purpose of the study is to develop a staged approach to achieve the ultimate twinned and upgraded, four-lane highway along this section of Highway 3.
This study will build on earlier planning efforts, examine the needs of local road networks and address new environmental policies that have emerged since the completion of previous planning studies.
The goal of the project is to develop a functional plan that will:
- Establish interim and ultimate layouts for a twinned highway complete with seven interchanges and two flyovers to manage highway and local access
- Confirm an ultimate bypass route south of Coleman
- Address environmental, geotechnical and historical considerations
- Account for safety, current and future land uses and access management
- Include an adjacent trail system to accommodate people who walk, bike and use other active transportation modes
- Consider wildlife movement and possible crossing structures and safety measures throughout the corridor
Alberta Transportation is committed to collaborate with local municipalities, stakeholders and the public to develop the plan and evaluate the options. Stakeholder engagement is an important part of this process and gathering feedback from key stakeholders is critical.
Stakeholders and interested members of the public are invited to attend an initial open house to learn about the project and provide feedback. Members of the project team will be available to answer your questions and to receive your comments.
Please refer to the map on the following page to view the study area. For more information about the project, please visit http://www.transportation.alberta.ca/6087.htm or call the Project Manager, Firoz Kara (403-592-8170).

Livingstone Landowners Group • Annual General Meeting
Posted April 25, 2017
Saturday, April 29, 1:30 pm, Lundbreck Community Hall
“Climate Change in the Oldman River Basin: A Local Perspective”
Presentation by Dr. Dave Sauchyn (1 hour including time for questions)
Dr. Dave Sauchyn is Research Professor at the Prairie Adaptation Research Collaborative at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan. His main research interests are 1) the climate and hydrology of the past millennium in Canada’s western interior and how knowledge of the past can inform scenarios of future climate and water supplies, and 2) planned adaption to minimize the adverse impacts of climate change. Dave recently co-directed a five-year interdisciplinary study of the vulnerability of agricultural communities to climate extremes in Chile, Argentina, Colombia and Brazil and the Canadian Prairies, where one of the two study areas was the Oldman River basin.
Dr. Dave Sauchyn poses with a “tree cookie,” that, since its cutting, has provided insight into the climatic variables of the past, and helped climate change scientists forecast the future in terms of climate and available water.
