Spruce Meadows Way S.W. widening

Project update

Construction has now ended for this year. Unfortunately, due to some poor weather conditions this fall and an early start to winter, construction could not be completed in 2017.

Spruce Meadows Way is operating with two lanes of traffic during the winter. Construction will resume in the spring of 2018 and is expected to be completed by the summer.

The City of Calgary will be hosting a public Information Session to provide information about the various Ring Road connection projects:

  • March 21, 6 – 9 p.m.
    Southland Leisure Centre, 2000 Southland Drive S.W.

The Province of Alberta (KGL Constructors and Alberta Transportation) will also be in attendance with information about the Southwest Ring Road (SWRR) project.


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 SWRR.

This project includes the following features:

  • Upgrading Spruce Meadows Way from the current two-lane rural road to a four-lane arterial roadway between the SWCRR and 194 Avenue S.W. This will improve access for the community of Silverado, as well as area businesses and future developments.
  • Provides a more efficient option for people travelling to and from the SWCRR.
  • Improved street lighting.
  • Relocation of Enmax power lines.
  • Landscaping.

Calgary’s southwest ring road

The City is responsible for the design and construction of the projects connecting Calgary’s road network to the ring road because they are located within city limits. This drawing shows an overall view of the area and how it will integrate to the SWRR.
