Please expect some delays. We recognize there are few alternative routes for people living and working in this area and will make every effort to keep traffic flowing. A minimum of two lanes will remain open on Stoney Trail and the Trans-Canada Highway. However, some short-term closures and detours will be required to complete some aspects of construction. Any traffic interruptions will be signed in advance, and whenever possible we will update the web page and notify stakeholders.
