Crowchild Trail Upgrades .. June 2019 Update from City of Calgary

 

City of Calgary Crowchild Trail Upgrades: Upcoming Major Traffic Impact – Full Closure of 10 Avenue SW Ramp

As part of the Crowchild Trail Upgrades Project, we are reconfiguring the westbound 10 Avenue SW to northbound Crowchild Trail ramp.  As part of this work, the existing ramp will be FULLY closed for two weeks.

The Impacts

1) Beginning at 10 p.m. Thursday, June 13 and running straight through until 5 a.m. on Friday, June 28, the westbound 10 Avenue SW ramp to northbound Crowchild ramp will be closed.

2) Once complete, the newly-reconfigured westbound 10 Ave SW ramp will temporarily merge onto the right-hand side of Crowchild Trail.

3) The westbound Bow Trail to northbound Crowchild Trail ramp will continue to come up into its own lane on the far left-hand side of Crowchild Trail as it does now.

4) By the end of this summer, both ramps will be reconfigured and the 10 Ave SW merge condition onto Crowchild Trail will be eliminated; traffic from the 10 Ave SW and Bow Trail ramps will join together and enter northbound Crowchild Trail as a dedicated, added right-hand lane.

The City will be messaging out the traffic impacts via on-site messaging, social media, the project website, e-newsletter and some proactive media interviews. They will also be communicating and coordinating with emergency services to maintain access.  Suggested detours and associated signage will be in place.

Expect increased activity and frequent lane realignments all throughout the summer and fall.  As always, the most timely information will be available on the project page

First Major 2019 Traffic Shift

Beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, May 24 and running straight through until 5 a.m. on Monday, May 27, there will be a significant increase in construction activity along the Crowchild Trail construction sites. In addition to regular roadworks, our crews will be temporarily (until the end of July) relocating the exit point from northbound Crowchild Trail to the eastbound and westbound Memorial Drive off-ramps.


This means…


Over the weekend:

  • More workers than usual will be on-site.
  • There will be single lane traffic in both directions along Crowchild Trail (over the river) throughout the weekend.
  • There will be ongoing rotating lane and ramp closures, relocated barriers, and re-painting of lane lines.

Effective Monday morning (5 a.m.):

  • The current exit to both the eastbound and westbound Memorial Drive off-ramps will be shifted 50 metres south (from now until the end of July).
  • BOTH the northbound and southbound lanes along Crowchild Trail will be realigned.
