Project Update: July 2022


Final landscaping between Bow Trail and 17 Avenue S.W. will be taking place starting on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 for approximately four weeks.

No pathway or roadway closures are expected during this time, however temporary fencing will be in place around work areas. Please travel with caution in the area while work is underway.

Project upgrades

Major upgrades for this short-term improvements project were completed in Fall 2020. The new lanes are open, traffic flow has been improved over the Bow River and we hope you’re taking advantage of the increased connectivity to our pathway network.

From now through to the end of this construction season, expect to see a few skeleton crews on-site taking care of some final touch-ups (along Crowchild Trail, between 5 Avenue N.W. and Bow Trail). To ensure the least amount of inconvenience, they’ll only be on-site during off-peak hours (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.).

Thank you again, Calgary for your support, patience and understanding throughout this project. We could have never done it without you. We created a video that summarizes the innovation behind this project and our sincerest thanks to you.
