Crowchild Trail Construction Update

This just in from the Senior Transportation Engineer for Crowchild Trail Upgrades:

"1) Finishing Touches: Crowchild Trail & 5 Avenue N.W. Intersection

Begins August (approx. one month)

Now that this project is nearing completion, we’re coming back to this area to put some final touches on the intersection.

To avoid disturbing residents overnight, 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.

Those who walk and wheel 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.

2) 10 Avenue S.W.

Begins August (approx. one month)

Over the next few weeks we will begin the process of removing the detour we’ve had in place along 10 Avenue S.W. throughout construction. Please proceed through the area cautiously.

3) Crowchild Trail

Ongoing – End of the summer

Last month we finished paving along northbound Crowchild Trail (between Bow Trail & Memorial Drive) and the additional lane is now open. This past week we finished paving along southbound Crowchild Trail (south of the Bow River) and now the lanes are in their final configuration. As soon as the fresh pavement has cured, we’ll get the new lane lines painted. Then, we’ll do some final landscaping and clean up in the area and we’ll be out of there.

4) Add-On Rehabilitation Work

Ongoing – End of the summer

As previously mentioned, in an effort to increase efficiencies and avoid multiple disruptions to citizens, we’re rehabilitating the following structures while we’re already in the area:

  • Southbound Crowchild Trail Bridge (over Bow Trail) & Westbound Bow Trail to Southbound Crowchild Trail Ramp

    • The major rehabilitation components have been complete. We’ve got some minor work left to do, some clean up, and then we’ll move out of this area.

  • Westbound Memorial Drive Bridge (over Crowchild Trail)

    • Most of the necessary work under the bridge has been completed and our crews are now working up top.

We anticipate this work to go on until the end of this summer. Associated lane and ramp closures will continue until then and signage will be on-site to direct people travelling through the area accordingly.

We will also continue working closely with our City colleagues to ensure appropriate detours are in place for people who drive, walk and wheel and that emergency accesses are maintained. The most timely information will continue to be available on our project page."
