At one point, it was part of Highway 14, but with the completion of the interchange at Highway 14 and Whitemud Drive, the designated route of Highway 14 was changed to follow Whitemud Drive to Calgary Trail. The former Highway 14 along the east edge of the city was renamed Highway 14X, and ultimately Highway 216 (Anthony Henday Drive), and the portion of the Sherwood Park Freeway within Strathcona County was designated Highway 100, although no signs indicating such are posted along the road.
There are six interchanges on the freeway. The freeway begins just after 71 Street, with 82 (Whyte) Avenue and Argyll Road joining to become a freeway. To the east after the Highway 216 interchange, Sherwood Park Freeway continues as Wye Road through Sherwood Park, while the Highway 100 designation is dropped approximately 0.8 km east of this interchange. Wye Road/Highway 630 continues through Sherwood Park and the balance of Strathcona County, eventually meeting up with Highway 14 west of Tofield. The boundary between the City of Edmonton and Strathcona County runs on the south side of the right of way from 34 Street to Highway 216.
Most of its length is scheduled to be improved, and widened, with completion scheduled for 2016.
The official length of the Highway 100 is only 4.1 km, making it the second shortest non-lettered primary highway in Alberta after Highway 31. It is the only three-digit Alberta Primary Highway (1-216 Series) that is not a ring road.
Sherwood Park Freeway currently has six interchanges, giving it freeway status for the 7.2 km (4.5 mi) from 71 Street to Ordze Road.
