Highway 14 begins in south Edmonton as a freeway named Whitemud Drive at the Calgary Trail / Gateway Boulevard interchange, linking to Highway 2. It travels east for 9 km (5.6 mi) along Whitemud Drive through neighbourhoods of southeast Edmonton until reaching the Anthony Henday Drive ring road, with which it is concurrent for 2 km (1.2 mi). Leaving the city, the highway veers east and intersects Highway 21 before the divided highway ends west of South Cooking Lake. It continues east toward Tofield where it bends southeast, paralleling the main line of the Canadian National Railway, and passes through Ryley, Poe, Holden, and Bruce before intersecting Highway 36 (Veterans Memorial Highway) in Viking. The highway continues through the communities of Kinsella, Irma, Fabyan, and Wainwright, crossing Highway 41 (Buffalo Trail). The route then travels due east and intersects Highway 17 to enter Saskatchewan. 
Highway 14 historically began in Old Strathcona at the intersection of 104 Street (Calgary Trail) and Whyte (82) Avenue, following Whyte Avenue and 79 Avenue out of Edmonton until it was realigned to the newly constructed Sherwood Park Freeway further in the mid-1960s. Just west of Sherwood Park, at the Highway 14X junction, Highway 14 branched south for 6 km (3.7 mi) along present-day Anthony Henday Drive before it turned east. In the 1980s, Highway 14 was rerouted to follow Whitemud Drive into the city; however it followed 50 Street and Sherwood Park Freeway as at the time Whitemud Drive terminated at 34 Street. In 1999, Whitemud Drive was extended to present-day Anthony Henday Drive and Highway 14 was changed to its current alignment.

Former Auxiliary RoutesEdit
There are three former auxiliary routes of Highway 14 located in the Edmonton area.
|Length||3.0 km (1.9 mi)|
There are two former alignments of Highway 14A. The first route followed Connors Road and 83 Street between Highway 14, which at the time followed Whyte (82) Avenue, and downtown Edmonton via the Low Level Bridge. The route was phased out in the 1970s.
|Length||5.0 km (3.1 mi)|
The second route of Highway 14A was 76 Avenue through Strathcona County. Highway 14 formerly shifted south from Whyte (82) Avenue to 76 Avenue before continuing east. When the Sherwood Park Freeway opened in 1968, Highway 14 was moved to the new route and the former route was renumbered as Highway 14A. The route was phased out in the 1970s.
