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.
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.
