Metis Trail N.E. Twinning

In October 2018, the twinning of Metis Trail N.E. from 80 Avenue to the future Airport Trail was completed. Twinning this section of Metis Trail N.E. provides a consistent and streamlined driving experience for people travelling through the area, which helps reduce travel times. When the Airport Trail extension is built in the future, travel times and distances for people travelling to the Calgary International Airport will also be reduced.

Improvements included:

  • Upgrade Metis Trail N.E. from a 2-lane undivided road to a 4-lane divided arterial roadway between 80 Avenue and the future Airport Trail.
  • A pathway along the east side of Metis Trail N.E., between 88 Avenue and the future Airport Trail intersection.
  • A new signalized intersection at Metis Trail and 88 Avenue N.E.
  • Upgrade the storm water system.

This drawing shows an overall view of the area and the features that were part of the construction work.

Budget:

$4 million
