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 included 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.

West Calgary ring road

The West Calgary Ring Road (WCRR), between Highway 8 and the Trans-Canada Highway, contains the final nine kilometres of the Calgary Ring Road. Most of the road will be built on the existing Transportation Utility Corridor owned by the Government of Alberta.

The WCRR project will be completed in three parts – the north project, south project, and twinning of the bridge over the Bow River. For more information on this project, visit the West Calgary Ring Road home page.
