With the Government of Alberta recently awarding KGL Constructors to design and construct the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR), preliminary works are currently underway.
Southwest Calgary Ring Road construction
Through winter 2016, KGL will begin preparing the area
within the Transportation Utility Corridor for construction. As a result, there
may be some traffic lane closures during off-peak periods. We expect these lane
closures to have minor impacts to Calgary’s drivers. KGL will launch a website
in mid-November that will serve as the main source for SWCRR construction and
traffic information. Stay tuned for further information from KGL.
The City of Calgary connections
The City is
building road connections and improvements to make sure the SWCRR fits with
Calgary’s road network. The first to be completed is Westhills Way.
While the road is finished, it won’t be open until the SWCRR connects to it in
fall 2021. You can find out more information on the other road improvements on
their web pages:
