On the horizon: Four big infrastructure projects coming our way

Despite the collapse of energy prices over the past year, infrastructure spending will remain a priority in Alberta. As former Alberta premier Jim Prentice explained before unveiling his proposed budget, "We're still expecting 80,000 new Albertans this year, and they won't be bringing schools, hospitals or roads with them."

Right now there is nearly $10 billion worth of major infrastructure projects in progress. Many of these—including the work on Anthony Henday Drive in Edmonton, the International Transborder Concourse in Calgary and twinning of Highway 63 in the northern part of the province—are old news, but four projects are yet to begin.

Here's a look at what's happening and when.
