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
Airport Trail N.E. – Phase 2
Crews are back this spring to finish construction of the two new interchanges at Airport Trail with 19th Street and with Barlow Trail N.E. This project will complete the link between Deerfoot Trail and Stoney Trail, offering drivers more flexibility, and alternate routes to get to, and travel around, east Calgary. There have been several projects completed to link Stoney Trail and Deerfoot Trail including:
- The southbound to westbound ramp at the Stoney Trail interchange, opened in 2020
- The extension of Airport Trail between Metis Trail and 60 Street N.E., completed in 2021.
- The Airport Trail extension between Metis Trail and 36 Street N.E., opened to traffic in October 2021.
- Intersection upgrades at 36 Street, Metis Trail and 60 Street N.E. to accommodate the new traffic flow on Airport Trail, completed in 2021.
“The extension of Airport Trail supports the ongoing development and growth of this area as well as the entire northeast area,” said Project Manager Sig Undheim. “Completing this project is an important part of a safe, effective transportation network that supports and services the surrounding businesses and community network, The Calgary International Airport and the city at large.”
