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
2022 Bridge rehabilitation projects
As part of our goal to provide a safe and efficient transportation network to all citizens, staff work year-round to maintain our existing infrastructure. This includes maintaining approximately 400 traffic, pedestrian and LRT bridges around the city. In 2022, The City will be completing rehabilitation work on the following bridges:
- Centre Street Lower Deck
- 16 Ave/University Drive N.W.
- Shouldice (Hextall) N.W. Pedestrian Bridge
- McKnight Blvd/east of Centre Street N.E. Street Pedestrian Bridge
“Maintaining bridges through both routine and preventative types of maintenance assists in keeping bridge deterioration in check,” says Bridge Maintenance Manager Charmaine Buhler. “This work will improve drivers’ safety, improve network reliability, and extend the service life of the bridges.”
