Project Update – October 18, 2021

What’s Happening in Traffic This Week

Southbound Stoney Trail Reduced to One Lane & New Exit for Scenic Acres Link N.W.

From Tuesday, October 19 to Saturday, October 23, each night between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m., lane closures will be in place on southbound Stoney Trail south of Country Hills Boulevard N.W. to modify overhead signs. Delays are expected.

Once the overhead sign changes are complete, the new collector-distributor road north of Crowchild Trail will open and the exit from southbound Stoney Trail to Tuscany Boulevard N.W. and Scenic Acres Link N.W. will shift north of Crowchild Trail.

101 Street S.W. Open on New Alignment

101 Street S.W., north of Township Road 242 / 17 Avenue S.W., is now open on the new alignment. Lower Springbank Road S.W. is also open on the new alignment through the roundabout, and 101 Street S.W. is permanently closed between Township Road 242 / 17 Avenue S.W. and Lower Springbank Road S.W.

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.

Work on the roundabout south of the Trans-Canada Highway continues. This area was only recently accessible for construction when traffic shifted to the new roads.

Bridge Deck Paving

Each lift of asphalt creates a longitudinal joint (where two lifts of asphalt poured at different times meet). Longitudinal joints should be aligned with lane lines to avoid loads from the vehicle wheels on the joints.

Do Not Enter the Bow Trail Ravine

Despite concrete barriers, construction fencing, signage and numerous warnings, people are still entering the construction area. This is extremely dangerous and illegal. Once again we are asking the public to keep out of the active construction site.
