City of Calgary Roads Construction Program 2016 kickoff
Every year during the warmer months, City of Calgary Roads crews begin work on rehabilitating and maintaining Calgary’s vast transportation network of roads and sidewalks.
Nearly $40 million dollars has been allocated to maintaining the City’s existing roadways through paving and concrete work for the 2016 construction season. Calgarians have undoubtedly seen the work happening on Edmonton Trail N.E. and 36 Street N.E, and there are several other major paving projects planned for 2016, including:
- 14 Street N.W. between Memorial Drive and 21 Avenue N.W.
- Northmount Drive N.W. between Cambrian Drive and 4 Street N.W.
- Macleod Trail S.E. from 34 Avenue to 58 Avenue S.E.
- 36 Street N.E. from Memorial Drive to McKnight Boulevard N.E.
- Edmonton Trail from Memorial Drive to 32 Avenue N.E.
- Bonaventure Drive S.E. from Canyon Meadows Drive to Anderson Road S.E.
This work occurs during the summer months and through October, weather permitting. The City of Calgary recognizes the importance of maintaining an efficient transportation network. Work is scheduled during off-peak hours and at night to mitigate impacts to motorists and pedestrians.
This year The City has also added an interactive map highlight paving projects to the paving homepage. For more information on paving and to view this map visit Calgary.ca/paving.
