As we approach the start of the Government of Alberta’s construction
on the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR) in late 2016, The City of Calgary
began work on its SWCRR-related projects. With each City project having its own
timeline over the next four years, we’ll be updating and talking with
communities and residents throughout the different design and construction
phases. The goal is to complete this work before fall 2020, when the Government
of Alberta is scheduled to open the first section of the SWCRR. I’ve also
attached a PDF version of this note, in case that format is easier for you to
post online or forward the information to people who you think would be
interested in the project.
Here’s an update on The City’s projects and their timelines,
in alphabetical order:
90 Avenue S.W and Southland Drive connections
162 Avenue S.W. connection
Anderson Road widening, between SWCRR and Elbow Drive
Bow Trail/85 Street S.W. intersection improvements and
the Bow Trail widening, between 85 Street S.W. and Old Banff Coach Road
Glenmore Trail widening and changes to the
Glenmore/Crowchild Trail interchange
Sarcee Trail/Richmond Road interchange
This work revisits existing interchange plans from 2008 so it fits with the
ring road, Sarcee Trail, Richmond Road, and provides good connections for
communities and destinations.
Planning and design: 2016-2017
Construction: TBD, project is unfunded
Spruce Meadows Way widening
Westhills Way- www.calgary.ca/westhillsway
Construction: 2016 (underway)
As these designs progress through 2016 and 2017, and more information is
confirmed on each of these project schedules, more information will be
available to the community. You can find more about the Government of Alberta’s
SWCRR project, its location, access, designs, schedule, etc. at www.sw-crr.ca. You can read more about The
City’s involvement on the SWCRR at www.calgary.ca/swrr.
