Natural Gas Distribution work planned for the
intersection of Bow Trail and Sarcee Trail:
gas distribution line proposed to cross under the intersection of Sarcee and
Bow Trail is required as part of the ATCO
UPR Project. In coordination with
the City of Calgary, detailed design has been completed and the project has
been issued for tender. The design takes
into consideration current long term plans for the intersection (which does not
include an interchange). Please view the overview of the proposed crossing
location as well as proposed depths under the existing intersection ATCO-Gas_SarceeTr-BowTr_ProposedCrossing.pdf.
The construction method across the intersection will be completed by Horizontal
Directional Drill (HDD), which is a trenchless installation method.
The City of
Calgary Transportation Department intersection plans are still under a
feasibility study at this location. ATCO Gas anticipates installing the
proposed crossing in Q2 2017 to allow the Transportation Planning department to
finalize the long term plans for the intersection. ATCO will continue to coordinate this work
with the City of Calgary.
Natural Gas Transmission work planned along
Highway 8 (future Stoney Trail):
Pipelines plans to begin construction on the West
Calgary Connector Project in Q2 of 2017 with an approximate construction
duration of 6 months, however, this timing is subject to the Alberta Utilities
Commission facilities application process that is currently underway.
