What’s Happening in Traffic This Week

Eastbound Trans-Canada Highway Reduced to One Lane

This week the median (left) lane on eastbound Trans-Canada Highway, east of Stoney Trail, will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily for road construction.

Eastbound Trans-Canada Highway to Bowfort Road N.W. Exit Ramp Detour

Over the weekend, the exit ramp from eastbound Trans-Canada Highway to Bowfort Road N.W. was shifted east to accommodate construction. 

All work is weather dependant. 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.
