Project update - Dec. 7, 2016
Construction is continuing on these interchange upgrades. The new eastbound Stoney Trail to Sarcee Trail off ramp was opened in November, as well as the new signalized intersection along Sarcee Trail, south of the existing intersection.
Portions of the existing signal system will need to remain in place throughout the winter months. This arrangement is necessary to accommodate southbound Sarcee Trail to eastbound Stoney Trail traffic until the loop ramp can be completed in 2017.
The project team has worked with the City’s Signals division to optimize the timing of signals to ensure traffic flows smoothly. The intersections will also be monitored in order to make any necessary adjustments.
This project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
About the Projects
The City is working on animprovement project at the intersection of Stoney Trail and Sarcee Trail in the city’s northwest. These improvements will make the interchange safer, more efficient for all users and help reduce travel times for the movement of goods and for commuters traveling southbound on Sarcee Trail to eastbound Stoney Trail.
The interchange was originally designed to serve passenger vehicles, but an increasing number of large, commercial vehicles are using the interchange, causing traffic delays and raising safety concerns. The modified interchange will help ease congestion and allow for better traffic flow.
Associated with the interchange project is the widening of 112 Avenue north of Stoney Trail in an effort to make that roadway safer for all vehicles and to better accommodate local industries. Among other benefits, the widening of 112 Avenue NW between 69 Street and Sarcee Trail from two to four lanes will help reduce congestion and noise around Royal Birch Blvd. and Country Hills Blvd.
