Project Update – November 30, 2020

What’s Happening in Traffic This Week

New Exit Ramps

Please slow down through this area and be patient while drivers adapt to the new exits.

Crestmont Boulevard S.W.

Single lane alternating traffic is still in effect along Crestmont Boulevard S.W. as crews continue to work in the area. Old Banff Coach Road S.W. can be used as an alternative route if you want to avoid this lane closure.

Westbound Trans-Canada Highway

Periodic right lane closures may be needed this week on westbound Trans-Canada Highway west of Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W. Work on the embankment road for the westbound Trans-Canada detour lanes is nearing completion.

All work is weather dependent. Please check 511 Alberta and The City of Calgary’s traffic information map for up-to-date information on traffic detours and speed reductions. 

We appreciate your patience during construction.

Controlled Blasting Finished Until 2021

Controlled blasting on the Paskapoo Slope will resume in Spring 2021 for about two months.

24-Hour Work East of Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W. Interchange

With the new bridge and exit ramps open, the final piece of roadwork needed to shift westbound Trans-Canada Highway traffic north onto a detour can begin. Working continuouslyfor a short time will reduce the overall duration of the work, as well as reduce the traffic delays caused by trucks hauling material through the roundabout exclusively in daytime hours.
