Red Deer County begins work on Junction 42 development

J42 (2)

New development will see commercial area located at intersection of Hwy 2 and 42.

Red Deer County is pleased to announce that construction is commencing on the Junction 42 development south of Gasoline Alley. This follows a June 12 Council meeting, where Red Deer County Council approved a Local Area Structure Plan (LASP) for a new commercial subdivision.

The Plan area encompasses approximately 118 hectares (291 acres) of land located 9.5 kilometers south of the City of Red Deer. The site is directly adjacent to the boundary of the Town of Penhold, within an area north and west of the Highway 2 & 42 overpass.

The first phase of development will see the creation of a large commercial area and truck parking area located adjacent to Highway 42. This will allow for large trucks to stop, refuel, and find services such as food outlets and a convenience store.

An important first step will be the creation of a parking pad with temporary washrooms. This will give truck traffic a place to pull off and rest, as the service road along Gasoline Alley West is now closed.

According to Mayor Jim Wood, “The Junction 42 development will be the next major step in Red Deer County’s economic development. We are seeing a great deal of interest in the project, and it is a sure sign that the business community still views Red Deer County as a great place to invest in.”

County Manager Curtis Herzberg remarked, “Junction 42 will be an ideal place for truck traffic and larger vehicles to enter, get the services they need, and exit back onto the highway in a convenient and safe manner. This project demonstrates excellent cooperation on behalf of the provincial government, Red Deer County, and private industry.”
