What’s Happening in Traffic
Traffic pattern changes on Highway 8
In the coming weeks, there will be a series of minor traffic pattern changes on Highway 8 near 69 Street S.W., to shift traffic onto the new eastbound lanes.
Please expect minor delays, drive cautiously and obey on-site signage.
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. For all other project information, please visit westringroad.ca.
We appreciate your patience during construction.
This spring, work on the bridge has included pouring concrete crash barriers, installing guardrail and painting the exterior surface.
Waterproofing tile has been placed on the entire length of the bridge deck as the precursor to paving. Once paving and other finishing works are complete, traffic will be shifted to the new bridge and rehabilitation work on the existing bridge will begin.
Considerable progress is being made on the three-level, systems interchange at Highway 8.
Stoney Trail structures
The bridges for northbound and southbound Stoney Trail have been paved.
Bridge deck formwork and rebar is ongoing for the northbound Stoney Trail to Highway 8 flyover.
