The province is warning Calgary drivers to be prepared for lengthy delays and interruptions as crews ramp up work on the southwest ring road.
Alberta transportation is released details Monday on how construction of the route will affect summer driving.
Changes are coming for the 22X corridor from Macleod Trail west and along the Highway 8 Glenmore Trail corridor west of the reservoir.
“We’re trying our best to minimize impacts,” Rizwan Hussain with Alberta Transportation said.
The province suggests the Glenmore Trail-Sarcee Highway 8 Interchange will have the greatest impact on commuters, but they couldn’t say exactly how it will effect drive times.
“It’s a massive interchange that we need to build here and there’s not much room for our crews to work.”
Construction begins June 20 and will likely continue in fall of 2019.
The province also says realignment of the Fish Creek and Elbow rivers are now complete.
