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
Operational and Safety Improvements Project
Each year, The City evaluates roads and intersections across Calgary that require operational improvements for enhanced safety, traffic flow or infrastructure maintenance. This year, upgrades to two loop ramps connecting to 16 Avenue N.W. – from northbound Bowness Road and southbound Shaganappi Trail – and construction of a new U-Turn lane on Bow Trail S.W., at the east leg of the Sarcee Trail S.W. intersection, are on the roster.
“These are very busy, major routes used not only by residents in the local communities, but also those visiting or travelling through Calgary,” says Project Manager Mario Da Silva. “Completing these upgrades will be a key step towards enhancing safety and connections for all travelers in the area.”
This work will also be coordinated with other improvements on Bowness Road, including pavement rehabilitation from 37 to 41 Street N.W., installation of bus pads at four existing stops and completion of a missing pathway link between Shaganappi Trail and 41 Street N.W.
Construction is scheduled to begin in May 2022, with completion scheduled for fall 2022.
