Crowchild Trail Bridge Update: The Homestretch

The City of Calgary recently provided the Richmond/Knob Hill Community Association with this update and we thought that we'd share.


"1) Finishing Touches: Crowchild Trail & Kensington Road N.W. Intersection

Begins Monday, June 1 (approx. one month)

Now that summer is here, we’re coming back to this area to finish up the remaining work which includes replacing the temporary asphalt with concrete. To avoid disturbing residents overnight where possible, our crews will be taking advantage of the lighter traffic volumes and staging work between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Pedestrians and cyclists will be temporarily detoured to opposite sides of the road so they can cross safely, and drivers will experience lane reductions and the temporary re-routing of turn lanes. Detour signage will be on-site and the transit stops/parking in the area will remain unaffected.

2) Add-On Rehabilitation Work

On-going (will be completed by the end of this summer)

As mentioned last year, and in an effort to avoid multiple and repeated disruptions to citizens, we’ve re-prioritized the lifecycle schedules of the following three structures and are rehabilitating them while our crews are already in the area:

· Southbound Crowchild Trail bridge (over Bow Trail)

· Westbound Bow Trail ramp to southbound Crowchild Trail (over Bow Trail)

· Westbound Memorial Drive Bridge (over Crowchild Trail)

3) We’re In The Homestretch…

Over the next couple of months, you’ll notice an increase in activity in the overall project area due to the commencement of our final paving work, landscaping and clean up as we push through to completion at the end of this summer.

We will continue to keep you, your community members, area businesses and residents in the loop. For the latest updates and list of traffic impacts, please visit www.calgary.ca/crowchild."
