Lower Sarcee Feedermain - Water Infrastructure Project

The Lower Sarcee Feedermain project is the construction of a new 6 km feedmain that will help provide safe, clean and reliable drinking water to new and existing communities in Southwest Calgary. 

A feedermain is a large-diameter pipe that conveys water from one reservoir or pumping station to another. The size of pipe used in this project is 1050mm diameter.

The route will run along James McKevitt Road SW from 162 Avenue SW to the Southwest Calgary Ring Road corridor, east along the corridor to Sheriff King Street SW and then south along Sheriff King Street SW to 210 Avenue SW.

Timeline (2022-2023)

The project will be built in two parts.

  • Part one is anticipated to run from Early 2022 to Fall 2022.
  • Part two is scheduled for 2022 with completion in Summer 2023.

Project update – June 2022

Construction will continue on James McKevitt Road S.W. until September 2022. During this time there will be the following impacts:

  • The northbound lanes of James McKevitt Road S.W. will be closed between the westbound Stoney Trail off ramp and 162 Avenue S.W. Two-way traffic will be maintained using the west side of James McKevitt Road S.W.
  • Work will involve extended hours and will have the potential for noise and dust.
  • Access to businesses along James McKevitt Road S.W. will be maintained, with a minimum of one point of access.
