Traffic Shift: Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W. / Crestmont Boulevard S.W. to Eastbound Trans-Canada Highway and Northbound Stoney Trail
Traffic from Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W. / Crestmont Boulevard S.W. has been shifted to a new detour on the re-aligned West Valley Road S.W. to access eastbound Trans-Canada Highway and northbound Stoney Trail. Access from westbound Trans-Canada Highway to Valley Ridge and Crestmont remains the same, as does the access from eastbound Trans-Canada Highway to northbound Stoney Trail.
Please watch for detour signage, drive cautiously and be courteous to other drivers. These roads are brand new and unfamiliar; it will take some time for drivers to adjust to the new route.
Access to businesses along West Valley Road S.W. – Calgary Climbing Centre, Calgary West Dance Academy and New Victory Church – has also been shifted to the south side using the new road alignment.
Access to Calgary West Campground, Chinook Winds Adventist Academy and Sid’s Mechanical is provided via the detour, however, West Valley Road S.W. is one-way eastbound, east of the Calgary Climbing Centre. There is no access to the west from 101 Street S.W. Drivers may use Bowfort Road N.W. to go west on the Trans-Canada Highway.
About the project
The North project design-build contract was awarded to EllisDon for $463M on March 5, 2019. Both the North and South projects are being constructed in a design-build contract structure, which means design and construction services are contracted together to a single entity.
Construction has been ongoing since the spring of 2019 and includes:
- Constructing three km of six- and eight-lane divided freeway
- Reconstructing five km of Highway 1 (Trans-Canada Highway) and one km of Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W.
- Two interchanges
- Highway 1 (Trans-Canada Highway)
- Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W.
- 1 Avenue S.W. connection
Please expect some delays. We recognize there are few alternative routes for people living and working in this area and keeping traffic flowing is a priority. 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.
