Project update - March 27, 2018

Construction is scheduled to resume in Spring 2018. Construction activities in 2018 will include:

  • Widening of Anderson Road between Elbow Drive and 14 Street S.W.
  • Widening of Anderson Road west of 24 Street S.W. to the Transportation Utilities Corridor (TUC) boundary
  • Rebuild and upgrade intersections at Anderson Road and 14 Street S.W., and at Anderson Road and 24 Street S.W.
  • Installation of noise walls ​

 

About the project

This project is one of several City-led projects to connect Calgary’s road network to the ring road and will accommodate changes to traffic volume and patterns that are expected after the opening of the Southwest Ring Road (SWRR).

The City is responsible for the design and construction of this project because it is located within city limits. It includes the following features:

  • Increasing Anderson Road from four to six lanes between the SWRR and Elbow Drive S.W. This, coupled with the higher speed limit of 80 km/hr and fewer intersections compared to other nearby east-west roads, makes it a more attractive option for people travelling through the area.
  • Adding extra turning lanes at all the intersections on Anderson Road between the SWRR and Elbow Drive S.W. will improve the flow of traffic along this route.
  • A noise study was conducted and determined that several locations along Anderson Road within the project area require noise barriers, as guided by The City's Surface Noise Policy. Information on the location and types of noise barriers are shown here.

Project timeline

  • Construction between Elbow Drive and 14 Street began in 2017; anticipated completion – 2018
  • Construction between 24 Street and Transportation Utilities Corridor began in 2017; anticipated completion – 2018
  • Construction between 14 Street and 24 Street will begin in 2018; anticipated completion – 2019
  • Construction of noise barriers will begin in 2018 with anticipated completion in late 2018

Anticipated final completion - end of 2019.
