Stoney Trail at 80 Avenue N.E. flyover
Project update - November 2023
Construction is scheduled to be substantially complete in November 2023. Crews will return in Spring 2024 to perform the final touches including final grading, boulevard seeding, and painting. The flyover will remain closed until the corresponding infrastructure within the adjacent Homestead Development is completed. Completion of the adjacent infrastructure is anticipated for spring/summer 2024.
Thank you for your patience during this work.
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.
