Stoney Trail at 80 Avenue N.E. flyover
Project updates - August 2023
Construction has resumed on the Stoney Trail at 80 Avenue N.E. Flyover project.
The work in the 80 avenue cul-de-sac area west of Stoney Trail, originally anticipated to start in July, has experienced some delay due to conflicts with existing and proposed utilities in the area. The conflicts have now been resolved. The work is anticipated to be completed by the end of August, weather permitting. Work is planned to occur from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
During this period, you can expect to see trucks and other equipment entering and leaving the area regularly in addition to fencing around the construction area. There may be construction noise and small amounts of dust. Provisions are put in place to keep noise, dust, and other disturbances at reasonable levels.
After this work is completed, crews will return for approximately three days in the fall, to complete the final top lift of asphalt on the roadway.
Please watch for workers and follow all posted signage in the construction area. We thank everyone for their patience while we complete this work.
The project is on schedule to be completed by November 2023.

Project impacts throughout construction
The speed limit on Stoney Trail close to the construction area may be reduced to 80 km/h during construction. There may also be delays due to reduced and/or partial lane closures. Access will still be maintained in both directions on Stoney Trail and we will make every effort to limit impacts on traffic; however, motorists are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes when possible.
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.
