Route 15 follows Brackley Point Road beginning at the junction with the Charlottetown Perimeter Highway (Trans-Canada Highway, Route 1). The route passes near the Charlottetown Airport, then proceeds north through the community of Brackley Beach. It is co-signed with Route 6 for 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) south of Brackley Beach. Route 15 terminates at the north shore, turning east and becoming the un-numbered Gulf Shore Parkway.[2]

Until the 1990s, Route 15 began at an intersection with Route 2 (St. Peters Road) in Charlottetown, 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) south of the current terminus. When the Charlottetown Perimeter Highway was constructed, Route 2 was reassigned to the new road, and the Route 15 designation was dropped from Brackley Point Road south of the new ring road.

Major intersectionsEdit

The entire route is in Queens County.
