Project updates - June 18, 2018

Upcoming Road Closure June 22 & June 23: Glenmore Trail & Crowchild Trail Flyover
On the evenings of June 22 and June 23, the southbound Crowchild to eastbound Glenmore flyover will be closed between 11p.m. and 7 a.m. so crews can complete a s​tormwater connection and do concrete work within the median.
Vehicle traffic will continue on southbound Crowchild Trail S.W. and perform a U-turn between two medians. The U-turn detour will be signed, and a flagger will be present to direct traffic onto the northbound Crowchild Trail exit ramp for access onto eastbound Glenmore Trail S.W. See the detour​.
Truck and bus traffic will be detoured onto westbound Glenmore Trail and utilize the 37 Street S.W. roundabout to access eastbound Glenmore Trail S.W. See the bus and truck detour​.

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 will 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 BRT program budget and associated projects approved by Council is $304 million, and includes the four BRT routes, as well as 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.
