My office has been asked about construction under way and what is happening, so I figured I can showcase some of the projects under way this summer. Over $130M new investments are under construction this summer in Calgary.
This is not including the Green Line, BMO expansion, Glenbow Museum renovation, and the Arts Commons expansion. For many, Calgary has two seasons: winter and construction season. #yyc #yycbuilds #yyccc
144 Avenue N.W. improvements
In The City’s northwest, the 144 Avenue N.W. improvements project will see the construction of a 1.2km extension of 144 Avenue N.W., between Symons Valley Road and 24 Street N.W., a bridge crossing over West Nose Creek and an expansion to the pathway system linked to the 5A Network. While providing benefits for drivers and pathway users, the project will also facilitate east-west transit connections with the future Green Line LRT in the long-term.
“This is an extensive project that will complete a key missing link for current and developing communities, while bringing improvements for pedestrians, cyclists and transit users,” says Project Manager Nik Danilov. “We also recognize the importance of the natural features in the area and have worked extensively with environmental experts to ensure that we respect and protect this bio-diversity.”
The first phase of construction began in late March 2022, with work scheduled to continue through until fall 2024.
