What’s Happening in Traffic This Week

Slopeview Drive S.W. Access

In the coming weeks, traffic will be shifted to the permanent Slopeview Drive S.W. access off of the roundabout. Once the permanent access is open, the temporary access will close.

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. For all other project information, please visit

Grouting the Anchor Bolts

Anchor bolts are used on overhead signs to connect the steel arm to the concrete base. The bolts transfer the load from the sign structure to the concrete base.

To stabilize the bolts and keep water out, the gap between the concrete base and the steel sign structure is grouted.

Grouting is complete

Pathway Underpass

The retaining walls for the Bow Trail S.W. pathway underpass have reached their full height. Work on the road structure above is underway.
