Ring Road construction set to start on Stoney Trail


CALGARY – Construction of the new Stoney Trail southeast interchange at Glenmore Trail is set to begin in early June, marking the next step in completing the Calgary Ring Road.

The construction means the interchange at 84th Street and Glenmore Trail SE will be permanently closed starting Friday at 7p.m.

Through traffic on Glenmore Trail will continue to flow.

The construction allows for the development of on and off-ramps between Stoney Trail and Glenmore Trail S.E.

Story continues below

The S.E. portion of the ring road is on track to open in October.

Alternate routes:

Motorists driving south on 84 Street SE will head west along Peigan Trail SE to 52 Street SE to Glenmore Trail, continuing south to 114 Avenue SE where they can head east to re-connect with 84 Street SE.

Motorists travelling north on 84 Street SE will be rerouted west along 114 Avenue SE to 52 Street SE to connect with Glenmore Trail, continuing north to Peigan Trail SE where they will head east to reconnect with 84 Street SE.

A separate, high-load detour has been identified east on 61 Avenue SE, south on 100 Street SE and then west on Venture Avenue SE to reconnect with 84 St. SE.

Local traffic wanting access to 84 Street SE will also use the high-load route.

Blackfoot Trail bridge work: 

Glenmore Trail has been in constant construction mode for years, and that will continue with another major project set to begin next month.

The City of Calgary will begin bridge deck rehabilitation along Blackfoot Trail over Glenmore Trail S.E.

This construction will impact traffic along Blackfoot Trail S.W. by reducing the roadway to three lanes in both directions.

There will be a closure of the off-ramp from westbound Glenmore Trail to southbound Blackfoot Trail S.E. and occasional late night single lane closures along Glenmore Trail S.E. between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

During this construction Blackfoot Trail speeds will be reduced to 50 km/h for the safety of crews and drivers.
