West Calgary Ring Road Project Update

From the Government of Alberta

West Calgary Ring Road

Project Update – September 2019

West Ring Road construction is underway. This year work is primarily focused on the roadworks between Crowchild Trail N.W. and the Bow River for the new Bow River bridge, and bridge construction for the upgraded interchanges at Trans-Canada Highway / Valley Ridge Blvd N.W. and Trans-Canada Highway / Stoney Trail.

Here’s what you can expect this Fall:

  • Road widening on southbound Stoney Trail from north of Crowchild Trail to south of Scenic Acres Link N.W. to provide new ramp lanes (collector-distributor) and three continuous lanes on Stoney Trail

  • Bridge construction at Scenic Acres Link N.W. for the exit ramp from southbound Stoney Trail to Tuscany Boulevard / Scenic Acres Link N.W.

  • A temporary pathway closure on the south side of the Bow River as part of twinning the Bow River Bridge

  • Excavation and earthworks for deep utility work (upgrades and / or relocates) between Valley Ridge Boulevard N.W. and Stoney Trail

  • Bridge construction (including earthworks and installing piles) for the interchanges at Trans-Canada Highway / Valley Ridge Blvd N.W. and Trans-Canada Highway / Stoney Trail

  • Excavation and earthworks for deep utility work (upgrades and / or relocates) on Old Banff Coach Road between 101 Street S.W. and the communities of Cougar Ridge / West Springs

Reduced speed limits and temporary lane closures should be expected in the project area through 2019. Please check 511 Alberta for up-to-date lane closures.
