Three major highway
corridors converge in Red Deer.
The north-south busy expressway linking Calgary
and Edmonton as well as several other points north and south including
the U.S. border is Highway 2 (Queen
Elizabeth 2 Highway and part of the North America Canamex Highway)
which runs along the west side of the city. Currently at four lanes,
plans are under way to expand it to six lanes.
Highway 2A is a primary 2-lane highway that runs through the city
north and south along Gaetz Avenue and is the city's major commercial
spine. It also links with the Red Deer Regional Airport.
Both Highways QE2 and 2A link the city with the close communities
of Blackfalds and Lacombe northward
and Penhold and
Highway 11 (the David Thompson Highway) runs east west through Red Deer
linking the mountain parks, Rocky Mountain House and Sylvan Lake with eastern Alberta including the Joffre
petrochemical plants and Stettler.
Highway 11A runs east-west on the north side of the city as an
alternate link west to Sylvan Lake and Highway
595 (19 St.) runs east-west on the south side of the city east to Delburne.
The very popular
Waskasoo Park with its trail system and feature nodes runs along the Red Deer River
through the city centre. The park extends along the river tributaries, Waskasoo and Piper Creeks.
