Project updates

October 11, 2019

Crews are continuing work on the vehicle bridge over the underpass at that 90 Avenue and 14 Street S.W. intersection. Traffic has been shifted to the north, and all turn movements at the intersection have been maintained.

Over the Thanksgiving long weekend, crews will be working along 14 Street between 75 Avenue and Heritage Drive S.W. during the night. While this work is happening there will always be at least one traffic lane open in both directions.

Barring any further weather impacts, the 90 Avenue S.W. pedestrian bridge is expected to open by the end of October.

The new roundabout at the intersection of 24 Street SW and Woodpark Boulevard S.W. is now open. While the new roundabout is one-lane, the four roads that access it, will remain two lanes. 

Work continues into October as crews finish concrete and electrical work for the MAX stations along Southland Drive and 24 Street S.W.​

Southwest Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

The Southwest BRT project is one of four additions to The City's primary transit network. The project includes new BRT stations along the length of the route, and construction of new bus-only travel lanes on 14 Street W between Southland Drive and 75 Avenue S.W. Buses will run in mixed traffic along the rest of the route, except on portions of Glenmore Trail and Crowchild Trail, where buses will be able to use the shoulder lanes to bypass traffic in rush hour.

The BRT project route will run from Downtown Calgary to Woodbine, and provide direct connections to major destinations that are currently underserviced by transit, such as Southland Leisure Centre, Glenmore Landing, Heritage Park, Rockyview Hospital, Mount Royal University, Lincoln Park, Currie Barracks, and Marda Loop.

 

Project budget

There have been a number of budget approvals related to the BRT program, with funding coming from a number of sources including the provincial and federal governments. The total Council approved budget for the BRT program and related projects is $304 million. This includes the four BRT routes, intersection improvements and noise walls which will be built as a part of the Southwest BRT.

For a full break down of the BRT program budget see the project background page.
