What’s Happening in Traffic This Week
Failure to Stop at Construction Crossings
The Calgary Police Service continues to receive reports of drivers frequently speeding through the construction zone and failing to stop at signalized construction crossings – particularly the crossings at Highway 8 and Old Banff Coach Road S.W.
A reminder that the traffic signals at the crossings are manually operated; if the light is red there is a large, heavy truck crossing. Speeding and failing to stop when the light is red at these crossings is endangering the safety of people working on site and other drivers on the road.
Overnight Lane Closures on Trans-Canada Highway
From 10 p.m. tonight (Monday, March 21) to 5 a.m. tomorrow morning (Tuesday, March 22), there will be intermittent lane closures on the Trans-Canada Highway near WinSport to allow crews to move overhead sign structures.
Single Lane of Alternating Traffic on 17 Avenue S.W.
Today and tomorrow (March 21 and 22), 17 Avenue S.W. will be reduced to a single lane of alternating traffic between 101 Street S.W. and Slopeview Drive S.W. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day for utility work. Flag people will direct traffic.
Utility work in this area is ongoing and intermittent delays can be expected in the coming weeks.
We appreciate your patience during construction.
