Northmount Drive N.W. pavement rehabilitation

Calgary Traffic Report 2016 Paving Projects


As part of The City of Calgary’s Pavement Rehabilitation Program, Northmount Drive N.W. between Cambrian Drive and 4 Street N.W. is scheduled for rehabilitation during the 2016 construction season.

The City of Calgary would like to thank residents, businesses and commuters for their patience and understanding during the road construction process. Please observe all posted signs and speed limits to ensure the safety of commuters and construction crews.

Project Scope

  • Localized concrete sidewalk or curb and gutter repairs.
  • Milling the existing asphalt surface on the entire segment (between Cambrian and 4 Street N.W.
  • Full reconstruction of existing road base will be completed in sections (to maintain necessary traffic flow) between Cambrian Drive and 4 Street N.W. to improve the structure of pavement.
  • Overlay with two or more layers of asphalt to provide a structurally sound and smooth surface for the design life.

Timeline

Construction is slated to begin in early June 2016. During the initial phase of construction, concrete repairs will be performed along Northmount Drive. There will be temporary traffic impacts throughout the construction season. Every effort will be made to ensure the impact of traffic movement is kept to a minimum, when possible, by working on weekends and off peak hours. Paving work will not begin until the end of June to minimize impact on schools along Northmount Drive.

We would like to remind Calgarians that schedules are weather and resource dependent and subject to change; any changes could have an impact throughout the phases of work within the schedules.
