Stoney Trail at 80 Avenue N.E. flyover

Project updates - July 2022

Crews are set to start work on the 80 Avenue N.E. Stoney Trail flyover this month, with utility crews working on the east and west side of Stoney Trail. This work needs to be completed before major construction on the flyover can start in early August.

In early August residents can expect to see heavy construction equipment in the area while the contractor moves in to start work on the flyover. There may be some increased noise while crews are working, and the regular hours of work will be Monday to Saturday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. We do not anticipate the utility work, and major construction for the flyover will have any impacts to private property.


  • 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.
