162 Avenue S.W. connection

Project update - December 11, 2019

This project is complete; however, the connection will remain closed until the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR) opens to traffic in late 2021.

Access from westbound 162 Avenue to Bridlecrest Boulevard S.W. will remain open until the SWCRR is completed. Once the SWCRR is open to traffic, the left turn from 162 Avenue to Bridlecrest Boulevard S.W. will be permanently closed.

Watch this video to see how The City has completed projects that will connect with the Southwest Calgary Ring Road.

About the project

This project is one of several City-led projects to connect Calgary’s road network to the ring road and will accommodate changes to traffic volume and patterns that are expected after the opening of the SWRR.

This project involves a number of features:

  • Connects 162 Avenue S.W. directly to the SWRR.
  • Provides an additional option for citizens travelling to and from the area.
  • Provides enough space for a bus lane between the future Providence development and the South LRT stations.

After the SWRR opens and traffic settles into its new pattern, The City will monitor the 162 Avenue S.W. and Bridleridge Way intersection, in case further modifications are needed.

Calgary's Southwest Ring Road

The City is responsible for the design and construction of the projects connecting Calgary’s road network to the ring road because they are located within city limits. This drawing shows an overall view of the area​ and how it will integrate to the SWRR.

To learn more about the other projects, as well as information on SWRR, including construction schedule, design and the history of the project, visit Calgary's Southwest Ring Road home page.

West Calgary ring road

The West Calgary Ring Road (WCRR), between Highway 8 and the Trans-Canada Highway, contains the final nine kilometres of the Calgary Ring Road. Most of the road will be built on the existing Transportation Utility Corridor owned by the Government of Alberta.

The WCRR project will be completed in three parts – the north project, south project, and twinning of the bridge over the Bow River. For more information on this project, visit the West Calgary Ring Road home page.
