The Government of Alberta is planning to complete Calgary’s ring road, with construction beginning on the southwest link in the next two years. To plan for a complete road network, the right connections between the ring road and the city are necessary. There are 11 locations where The City is designing and, in many cases, constructing roads that will connect the ring road to southwest Calgary.
Some of the connections will be new – like West Hills Way – while other projects will improve existing streets. For example, widening Anderson Road makes it more attractive to drivers. Well-designed links to the ring road will keep Calgary moving and will provide a number of benefits for citizens:
- Faster and more efficient travel options
- Improved traffic routing
- Improved safety and access by putting the right traffic on the right roads
- Reduced traffic impacts on nearby neighbourhoods
These improvements will give people more options to travel around Calgary. To find more about The City’s role with the last piece of Calgary’s ring road go to calgary.ca and search “ring road”.
