Ray Gibbon Drive preceded in Edmonton as 184 Street, an arterial road which begins at 100 Avenue and travels north to Anthony Henday Drive.  

Plans to upgrade Ray Gibbon Drive have been approved by St. Albert City Council and the Province of Alberta to widen the road to a 4-lane expressway standard. Original plans for a freeway conversion were scrapped as it would cost too much.
