14 Street S.W. Reconstruction - Anderson Road to Canyon Meadows Drive S.W.

Project update - March 2024

Beginning the week of March 18, Enmax will be relocating the existing overhead power line on the west side of 14 Street S.W. This work is anticipated to be completed by the end of April 2024.

The contractor hired for the 14 Street S.W. Reconstruction project will be proceeding with work around the Canyon Meadows golf course to complete work related to the installation of a storm pipe tie-in. Additionally, light underground work, utility installations, topsoil stripping and removals work will begin towards the end of March 2024.

Access to adjoining communities and the Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club will be maintained throughout construction. There are no planned roadway closures or traffic impacts expected.

A full, two-month closure of 14 Street S.W. will be required towards the end of April 2024 to accommodate reconstruction. 

Elbow Drive repaving - change in scope

The City of Calgary is working to achieve targets set out in the Council-approved Transportation Strategy to become a bike-friendly city by planning, designing and building more on-street bikeways, particularly bike lanes and cycle tracks. When possible, The City implements bikeway improvements in coordination with scheduled road paving.

Funding for bikeway improvements is now confirmed and bikeway improvements on Elbow Drive have been identified as a priority. As a result, the initial plan to repave Elbow Drive will be postponed to allow for planning and preliminary design for new bikeway infrastructure. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

Canyon Meadows Drive repaving - new

Canyon Meadows Drive has been identified as a high priority for pavement resurfacing. In place of repaving Elbow Drive in 2024, we will be repaving Canyon Meadows Drive eastbound lanes and a short section on westbound lanes from 14 Street to Macleod Trail. The rest of the westbound lanes have already been reconstructed as part of the sanitary trunk installation project.

The scope of work will remain the same as what was proposed for Elbow Drive and will consist of removing and replacing damaged curbs, sidewalks, median and islands, wheelchair ramps and mill and inlay of new asphalt. Including this in the scope of the 14 Street S.W. project will reduce construction impact in the area and reduce the need for coordination between different contractors.

Construction schedule and duration of work is currently being determined. Once plans are confirmed, we will provide a timely update regarding detours, lane closures and impacts.

Project overview

As part of a continuing program of major road restoration, The City is planning to complete road reconstruction on 14 Street S.W. from Anderson Road to Canyon Meadows Drive S.W.

There will be no changes to the number of lanes on the roadway as part of the current reconstruction project. A design will be completed for a potential future upgrade of this section of 14 Street S.W. from a two-lane road to a four-lane parkway, which may be warranted in the long-term.

By including the future four-lane road in the current design, The City is minimizing or eliminating potential throw-away costs.

A new pathway will be constructed along the east side of 14 Street S.W. and will be connected to the east to an existing pedestrian overpass on Anderson Road. Building this new pathway follows Council’s guiding principles and aligns with providing accessibility, mobility choices and connections for pedestrians and cyclists.

These upgrades will bring the design of the road up to modern standards, enhance safety and improve traffic flow, while improving connections for pedestrians and cyclists.

Project details

The project will include:

  • Pavement reconstruction and realignment of existing traffic lanes
  • Relocation of intersection/access into the Canyon Meadows Golf Course
  • Installation of a new stormwater system
  • Utility relocations
  • Streetlighting and landscaping
  • Addition of a new walking and wheeling connection along the east side of 14 Street S.W. from Canyon Meadows Dr. to Anderson Rd. with a connection along the south side of Anderson Rd. to the existing overpass at Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School.

A noise study has also been completed; based on the findings of this study, sound walls will not be installed as part of the current reconstruction project.

Project background

14 Street S.W. is a popular, high-use corridor which extends from north to south Calgary, connecting to important routes and destinations throughout the city. On the south end, the segment from Anderson Road to Canyon Meadows Drive S.W. is a two-lane rural road in need of rehabilitation.

The proposed reconstruction project would enhance safety and provide a more comfortable experience for all modes of travel, while helping to ensure the roadway remains in good condition for years to come.


  • Finalize design: Early summer 2023
  • Construction start: Fall 2023
  • Construction completion: Fall 2024

Construction activities are dependent on several factors. Timelines could change due to inclement weather, underground conditions and/or other unexpected circumstances.
