Project Update – October 4, 2021

What’s Happening in Traffic This Week

Southwest Calgary Ring Road Open

This weekend one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Alberta’s history opened to traffic. You can find some of the staggering project statistics at

Traffic Stoppages on Old Banff Coach Road S.W.

This week girders for the 17 Avenue S.W. interchange are being delivered. There will be short, intermittent traffic stoppages on Old Banff Coach Road S.W. east of 101 Street S.W. lasting about five minutes while the trucks turn south.

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.
