Range Road South Asphalt Extension under construction

We are extending the multi-use pathway along Range Road to Two Mile Hill!

The purpose of this project is increase active transportation connectivity between the Two Mile Hill and the Airport Trail multi-use pathways.

Background

In 2018, the Yukon Government completed the Range Road extension as a part of the Alaska Highway safety improvements through Whitehorse. This project included the extension of Range Road and a multi-use pathway connection from the Airport Trail to the limits of construction of the project. This project seeks to complete the connection between the Airport Trail and Two Mile Hill by extending the multi-use pathway along Range Road. The proposed upgrades include the following:

  • Drainage.
  • Excavation.
  • Landscaping
  • Multi-use pathway.
  • Pavement markings and signage.
  • Pedestrian crossings.
  • Retaining walls.
  • Surface works: asphalt, concrete.
  • Utility relocation.

The proposed upgrades will improve transportation accessibility, connectivity, equity, mobility, safety, and sustainability by:

  • Accessible pedestrian infrastructure to improve transportation mobility for people with disabilities.
  • Connection to both the Alaska Highway & Two Mile Hill/Hamilton Boulevard and Range Road & Two Mile Hill Road intersections.
  • Culverts and optimized grading to minimize pooling along the path and improve drainage.
  • Enhanced geometry and layout to minimize road safety conflicts between active transportation users and drivers.
  • Improved pedestrian crossings.
  • Improved vehicular sightlines.
  • Narrowed driveways at Canada Post to minimize active transportation crossing distances and exposure.
  • New pavement markings and signage for multi-use pathways.
  • Separation from both Range Road and the Alaska Highway to maximize safety and comfort of active transportation users.
  • Paved connections to major destinations along the corridor such as the Whitehorse Public Safety Building and the Whitehorse Operations Building.
  • Transit integration with the multi-use pathway.

What we're asking now:

This phase of engagement focuses on sharing information about the project.

How to get involved:

  • Keep posted to Updates.
  • Use the Ask A Question tool to ask the Project Team a question about the project.

Our promise to you:

We will keep you informed.
