Extending 96 Avenue N.E.

Spring means warm weather and the beginning of construction season. One of the major projects that has resumed work is the project to extend 96 Avenue N.E. and upgrade the Airport Trail / Deerfoot Trail interchange.

This project will see the construction of a six-lane extension of 96 Avenue N.E. from the Harvest Hills community to Deerfoot Trail, improvements to the Airport Trail / Deerfoot Trail to handle the movement of traffic in all directions, and the construction of a regional pathway system.

“2011 is an important year for this project because it includes the construction of bridges over the CP Railway tracks and Nose Creek and re-construction of the Airport Trail / Deerfoot Trail interchange ramps,” said Conrad Hild from The City’s Transportation department.

The interchange portion of this project is scheduled to be completed by end of 2011. All other elements will be done by 2012. Some areas of interest related to this work are the Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP) and the Municipal Development Plan (MDP).
