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 alberta.ca.
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.
We appreciate your patience during construction.
Traffic Shifted to New Roads
This weekend traffic was shifted to the re-aligned Crestmont Boulevard S.W., 109 Street S.W. and 1 Avenue S.W.
This is a huge milestone for the project and opens the area needed to construct the roundabout that will connect Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W. and 109 Street S.W.
