    • 45 Street will be closed for a short period of time this weekend to accommodate paving.

  • 46 Street S.W. at Bow Trail
    • 46 Street will be closed for a short period of time on Monday or Tuesday to accommodate paving.
    • Access to 46 Street is restricted to a “right-in” from eastbound Bow Trail to accommodate utility work on a gas line.

Project summary

Through July and August, The City is reconstructing eastbound Bow Trail between 37 Street and Sarcee Trail. This project is lengthier compared to other road work because crews are rebuilding the road, including its foundation. This work is necessary as part of its long-term life cycle maintenance to make sure Bow Trail is safe and drivable for people travelling in the area for the next 20 years.

Construction is scheduled to be complete on the eastbound lanes in early August. In September, Water Services will begin to relocate a water main utility line on westbound Bow Trail, between 37 Street S.W. and 38 Street.
