West Calgary Ring Road

What’s New

About the Project

The West Calgary Ring Road (WCRR), running between Highway 8 and the Trans-Canada Highway, is the final section needed to complete the Calgary Ring Road.  The entire Calgary Ring Road will provide more than 100 kilometres (km) of free-flow travel around the city, improving access to hospitals, schools, workplaces and recreation, and reducing congestion within the city.

The project will be completed in three parts — the North project, South project and twinning the bridge over the Bow River. The North and South segments are being delivered in a design-build contract structure which allows the contractor to both design and build the project (a traditional contract for this type of project would have design completed first and then tendered for contractors to bid). The design-build contract reduces timelines and minimizes impacts to the public.
