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
Stoney Trail North Interchange projects
This spring, construction continues on three interchanges The City is building on behalf of the Province of Alberta, over Stoney Trail to provide residents with more connections between communities and create connections to the pathways in north Calgary.
At both Shaganappi Trail and the Harvest Hills Interchange, crews will upgrade the existing interchange by finishing a second three-lane bridge adjacent to the existing north-south bridge, which will provide three travel lanes in each direction when complete. We will also be connecting to the multiuse pathways on the north and south side of Stoney Trail.
The 11 Street N.E. Interchange is a new interchange that will support the anticipated growth in the Stoney Industrial and Keystone Hills areas immediately surrounding Stoney Trail and 11 Street N.E. The design for this interchange will first build a half interchange to provide access to and from the north and accommodate the projected traffic volumes for the next 20 years. In the future, the design for 11 Street N.E. also includes a full interchange that can be built to provide access to and from the south when needed, or when 128 Avenue N.E. is extended.
“With better connectivity, increased traffic capacity, and more ways for people to bike and walk between communities, these interchanges in north Calgary will support both existing and new communities as they continue to grow,” said Project Manager Howard Kai.
