The City is widening Spruce Meadows Way S.W. to four lanes between the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR) and 194 Avenue S.W. This will provide improved access for the surrounding communities, businesses and future development areas.
Detailed design for the widening is nearing completion and construction is being planned for spring 2017. The design of this project involved coordination with utility groups and the Government of Alberta throughout the entire process.
Some preliminary construction work is already underway. The anticipated completion of the entire project is late 2017.
About the project
The Province of Alberta has committed to completing the SWCRR. The City is responsible for the design and construction of this project because it is within city limits. 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 streetlighting.
- Relocation of Enmax power lines.
The following drawing shows the current design of the Spruce Meadows Way widening as well as an overall view of the area and how it will integrate to the SWCRR.
Design: Summer 2015 – Early 2017
Construction: Spring 2017 – Late 2017
Project completion: Late 2017
Updates about the progress of this project will continue to be communicated, primarily through this webpage.
Discussion of the widening Spruce Meadows Way was included in two public information sessions in conjunction with the Macleod Trail/194 Avenue S - West Connection project in February and June of 2015.
A four-project Transportation information session, including Spruce Meadows Way widening, was held in March at Bishop O’Byrne High School.
