Project updates

May 2020

Over the next two weeks crews will be doing electrical work along 14 Street, as well as concrete and curb work on the medians. Work on the 14 Street barriers has started and will continue over the next few weeks. Work at the 75 Avenue and Heritage Drive intersections is to finish up the electrical work and road works at these intersections.

Construction on the noise walls on the east side of 14 Street S.W. is ongoing, and landscaping work along 14 Street S.W. should be complete by the end of July.

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.
