The Government of Alberta and The City of Calgary began planning Calgary’s Ring Road in the 1970s. During the 1980s and 1990s, the Province purchased most of the lands needed for the Transportation Utility Corridor around Calgary where the ring road would be built. With the northwest, northeast and southeast sections in operation – known collectively as Stoney Trail – the ring road now provides motorists with 70 kilometres of free-flow travel. It connects Highway 2 (Deerfoot Trail) in the south to Highway 1 (TransCanada Highway) towards Banff.
Calgary’s Ring Road is located within The Province’s Transportation Utility Corridor. The road is operated and maintained by the Government of Alberta.
