Stoney Trail at 80 Avenue N.E. flyover
Project updates - October 2022
Crews have completed the piling work for the centre piers of the new interchange. Work on the east and west of the interchange includes underground utility work, as well as ground work for the new on and off ramps.
Piling for the east and west supports of the interchange will start in mid-October, and residents may notice a slight increase in noise as crews are working.

- The speed limit on Stoney Trail close to the construction area may be reduced to 80 km/h during construction.
About the project
In 2018, City Council approved the East Stoney Area Structure Plan (ASP), which included plans for a flyover across Stoney Trail at 80 Avenue N.E. The primary purpose of this flyover is to reduce fire service response times from Station 32 to the East Stoney Area and the overpass was considered a requirement for area development to proceed.
The flyover is required to provide the 7-minute emergency response time for the Calgary Fire Department approved by Council to the future development east of Stoney Trail. This development area is not large enough to support the capital and operating costs required for a stand-alone emergency response station.
The flyover will be a two-way, single lane bridge that will be operated by traffic signals and automated gates on each end to control the direction of travel for emergency and transit vehicles and prevent public vehicles from accessing the flyover. The flyover also includes a multiuse pathway on the southside to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists.
