Project updates

August 12, 2019

The northbound and southbound 14 Street traffic lanes are now in their final location, and crews are focusing on the transitway on the west side of 14 Street S.W., the 90 Avenue S.W. underpass and the stations along Southland Drive and 24 Street through the rest of the summer and into the fall.
 
We anticipate the pedestrian bridge at 75 Avenue S.W. will be open in early September, and the final girder installation for the 90 Avenue S.W. pedestrian bridge should be happening in mid to late August.
 
Crews will be paving the transitway between 90 Avenue and Heritage Drive S.W. this week, weather dependent.
 
Lane closures will continue over the next few months, while crews work to finish other work within the road right of way.

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.
