Anderson Road S.W. widening

Project update - March 20, 2019

Construction activities are tentatively scheduled to resume during the second week of April, at which time the speed limit west of 24 Street and east of 14 Street along Anderson Road will be reduced to 50 km/hr.

Anderson Road / 24 Street intersection upgrades
Work at this intersection is scheduled to begin around the middle of April until the end of June.

Anderson Road Widening between 14 Street and 24 Street - Phase 1 South
Work on widening the eastbound lanes of Anderson Road is scheduled to begin during the latter half of April and last until the end of July. During this phase, east bound traffic will be shifted to the north to allow for the construction of future eastbound lanes to the south.

Anderson Road Widening between 14 Street and 24 Street - Phase 2 North
Work on widening the westbound lanes of Anderson Road is scheduled to begin at the beginning of August and last until early October. During Phase 2, all traffic will be shifted to the south which will allow reconstruction of the existing westbound lanes.

Four lanes of traffic will be maintained along Anderson Road throughout this construction.

Anderson Road from 24 Street west to the TUC Boundary
The next phase of the intersection upgrades is scheduled to start near the middle of April. Work at this intersection is scheduled to be completed by the end of June.

Anderson Road from 14 Street to Elbow Drive
Work between 14 Street and Elbow Drive is substantially complete. The top lift of paving at the 14 Street and Elbow Drive intersections is scheduled to be completed in June.

There are two planned partial closures in 2019:

  • Anderson Road / 24 Street Intersection - May long weekend
  • Anderson Road / Woodpark Blvd. - July long weekend

Noise Barrier Construction
Construction of the noise wall on the south side of Anderson Road, east of Woodpark Boulevard, will take place in 2019.

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 traveling 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.
