Strathcona County – Transportation Trends, Challenges and Opportunities

NACITE welcomes Ron Fraser, Director of Transportation Planning and Engineering for Strathcona County. Set in the centre of Alberta’s energy and agricultural heartland, Strathcona County is a thriving, successful and vibrant community made up of the urban area of Sherwood Park and a large adjacent rural area of farms, acreages and smaller hamlets. Planning and constructing quality infrastructure is a priority for Strathcona County to better serve it’s residents and foster a supportive environment for industry and business.

Ron will provide insights into the County’s strategic transportation planning direction, what drives transportation improvements in the County, and the challenges that the County faces in delivering infrastructure to accommodate on-going urban growth and development of the Industrial Heartland.

The majority of Ron’s experience was with Alberta Transportation which included his role as Manager of Infrastructure and Operations in Fort McMurray. Ron also has experience in municipal government with the Town of Drayton Valley, where he was the Director of Engineering and Development, and Strathcona County, where he currently serves as the Director of Transportation Planning and Engineering.

Ron hails from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. He obtained a Degree in Mathematics from Acadia University before pursuing a Degree in Civil Engineering from Queen’s University.
