    Southwest Ring Road Project

    The Southwest Ring Road Project is underway. The Government of Alberta is responsible for the design, construction, management and operation of Calgary’s Ring Road. For more information on the construction of the SWRR, the contractor KGL’s website contains information on construction, alignment maps and traffic detours.

    • Pile Driving near 90th Avenue SW

    KGL will be pile driving near 90 Avenue SW in the Transportation Utility Corridor for the future interchange of the SWRR and 90 Avenue SW. Residents in Oakridge and Lakeview may hear elevated construction noise until August 4th. KGL may be contacted directly at 403-242-0565 24 hours a day.

    The City of Calgary is also beginning work to extend streets to connect Calgary’s road network to the ring road, while improving some existing roads to make sure the SWRR fits with our city's road network.

    • Anderson Road Widening

    The City is widening Anderson Road SW from four to six lanes between the SWRR and Elbow Drive SW to improve the road network and eat-west travel. Construction will begin in late July or early August. Construction of the noise barriers along Anderson Road will also start this year.

    SW Transitway BRT Construction Update

    Construction on the transit only lane in the road right of way at the southeast corner of the Crowchild Trail and Glenmore Trail SW interchange has started. This new lane will be used by BRT buses only during times of congestion on Crowchild Trail to the Glenmore Trail flyover. This construction is expected to be complete by October 2017.

    We hope you’re having a great summer!
