2021 operational and safety improvements project

Project update - November 2021

Crews are wrapping up work along 16 Avenue N.W. over the next few weeks, including finishing the concrete median work, and installing the new traffic signal at 43 Street N.W. We anticipate the traffic signal will be installed by mid-December, and crews will be able to repair the brick work in the area once that work is complete.

Drivers are reminded to watch for detour signs, and reduced speed limits in the area while this work is underway.

Project overview

As Calgary grows, The City continuously evaluates various roads and intersections that require operational improvements for a variety of reasons like traffic congestion, safety issues, or infrastructure maintenance.

This year, four locations were chosen for improvements this summer:

  • McKnight Boulevard and 68 Avenue N.E. – Improvements to the ramp from westbound McKnight Boulevard to northbound 68 Avenue N.E.
  • Home Road and 16 Avenue N.W. – Intersection pavement removal and replacement
  • Montgomery
    • 16 Avenue N.W. (between Home Road and the CPR bridge) – Median extension
    • 16 Avenue N.W. (between 43 Street and Monseratt Drive N.W.) – Pavement rehabilitation

This work was identified as part of the short-term improvements for the Future of 16 Avenue N.W., as well as part of The City’s annual Pavement Rehabilitation Program and Operational & Safety Improvements Program.
