Ring Road Update June 2015

Throughout June, members of The City of Calgary’s ring road project team will be attending a number of City of Calgary ring road-related events. We’ll be there to answer questions and supplement the information that’s on display at each open house.

37 Street S.W. Stormwater trunk relocation open house, Tuesday, June 3, 5-7 p.m.
Lakeview Community Association, 6110 34 Street S.W.

The existing South Richmond Storm Trunk, which crosses Tsuu T’ina Nation’s lands, is being relocated as part of the land transfer agreement with the Tsuu T’ina Nation. The City will construct a replacement storm trunk within the 37 Street SW road right-of-way, south of Lakeview Drive SW, to a new discharge point in the Elbow River.

Anderson Road pedestrian bridge open house- Tuesday, June 9, 5-8 p.m.
Woodcreek Community Association, 1991 Woodview Dr. S.W.

A pedestrian bridge over Anderson Road SW, east of 37 Street S.W. and a pathway detour are planned for construction and completion in 2016. Located just east of the anticipated South West Ring Road (SWRR), the pedestrian bridge will link the communities of Woodbine and Cedarbrae. It will also serve as a north-south pathway connection for the existing pathway system, connecting south Glenmore Park and Fish Creek Park and replacing the intersection crossing at Bullhead Road and Anderson Road.

Next steps

Now that the land agreement has been approved by The Government of Canada, The Government of Alberta will begin the procurement process that will select the successful contractor to complete the design and build the Southwest Calgary Ring Road. The City of Calgary will continue the design process on the connections to the Southwest portion of Calgary’s Ring Road and the traffic review:

  • West Hills Way (new public road, connecting ring road with West Hills shopping area)
  • Glenmore Trail widening
  • Crowchild Trail/Glenmore Trail interchange modifications
  • 90 Avenue S.W. and Southland Drive connections
  • Anderson Road widening
  • 162 Avenue S.W. connection
  • Spruce Meadows Way widening

More information on the connections and traffic review recommendations are scheduled to be available in fall 2015.
