Project updates - February 11, 2019

As part of ATCO Pipelines work to complete work on their underground facilities, a portion of the right hand lane on westbound 90 Avenue S.W. west of 14 Street S.W. will be closed between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily for excavation work. This work will take approximately one more week to complete.
Construction continues on the middle structural support of the 90 Avenue pedestrian bridge. Traffic on 14 Street S.W. is reduced by one lane in the northbound direction for approximately one month. Traffic has been realigned in the southbound direction to maintain the existing number of lanes.
Crews will start work on the 75 Avenue S.W. pedestrian bridge at the end of February. The first part of the work will be rerouting pedestrians to an at-grade crossing before demolition of the existing bridge. The existing pedestrian bridge is scheduled to be closed starting the week of March 4 until late summer 2019. During construction, the number of southbound 14 Street S.W. travel lanes will be reduced to two lanes during non-peak hours while crews are working on the bridge. No lane closures on the northbound side are currently planned.

Southwest Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

The Southwest BRT project is one of four additions to The City's primary transit network. The project includes new BRT stations along the length of the route, and construction of new bus-only travel lanes on 14 Street W between Southland Drive and 75 Avenue S.W. Buses will run in mixed traffic along the rest of the route, except on portions of Glenmore Trail and Crowchild Trail, where buses will be able to use the shoulder lanes to bypass traffic in rush hour.

The BRT project route​​ will run from Downtown Calgary to Woodbine, and provide direct connections to major destinations that are currently underserviced by transit, such as Southland Leisure Centre, Glenmore Landing, Heritage Park, Rockyview Hospital, Mount Royal University, Lincoln Park, Currie Barracks, and Marda Loop.


Project budget

There have been a number of budget approvals related to the BRT program, with funding coming from a number of sources including the provincial and federal governments. The total Council approved budget for the BRT program and related projects is $304 million. This includes the four BRT routes, intersection improvements and noise walls which will be built as a part of the Southwest BRT.

For a full break down of the BRT program budget see the project background page.
