What’s Happening in Traffic
UPCOMING: Single lane of alternating traffic on Highway 8
The new westbound Highway 8 flyover is expected to open to traffic in October. To pave the tie in from the flyover to the existing lanes, Highway 8 will be reduced to a single lane of alternating traffic for two nights. The lane closures will be shared on electronic message boards once the timing is confirmed.
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.

Flyover Finishing Work
