Scheduled City of Calgary Downstream Impact Construction
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, with the Government of Alberta scheduled to open the first section of the SWCRR.
If you have questions or would like to chat more about the listed projects, you can email the project team directly at CalgaryRingRoad@newsletter.calgary.ca or contact 311.
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
Construction: 2016 (underway)
As these designs progresses through 2016 and 2017, and more information is confirmed on each of these project schedules, more information will be available to the community.
