Major traffic impacts

(Traffic restrictions on main roads and during rush hours)

Crowchild Tr. - full night-time closure
Crowchild Tr., between Glenmore Tr. and 50 Ave. SW, will have major traffic lane closures, including a full closure, beginning on Saturday night, June 15 and ending Sunday morning, June 16:
  • 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.: one lane open for driving north and one lane open for driving south.
  • 1 a.m. to 8 a.m.: FULL CLOSURE - all traffic lanes closed.
  • 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.: one lane open for driving north and one lane open for driving south.
The lane closures and full closure of Crowchild Tr. are necessary to install the pedestrian bridge truss across Crowchild Tr. People travelling in the area will be detoured around the closure. We recommend using Sarcee Tr. or Macleod Tr. if you need to travel north or south during this time.
 
There will be a rolling road closure, along Richard Rd. and 50 Ave. SW, as the Calgary Police Service escorts the truck carrying the truss to the pedestrian bridge site.

Glenmore Tr.- switching westbound lanes onto new lanes
Drivers heading west on Glenmore Tr., between Crowchild Tr. and 37 St., will shift north onto the new driving lanes, during Sunday evening, June 16. The shift is necessary to begin constructing the new traffic lanes, heading east.
 
We expect drivers heading east, will shift north onto the new lanes over the July-long weekend. More information will be available once the schedule is confirmed.
