Heritage Day 2011 Statutory Holiday Hours of Operation for City of Calgary Facilities

The City of Calgary is adjusting its hours of operation for services and facilities on Heritage Day, Monday, August  1, 2011.

All administrative offices are closed on Heritage Day, Monday, August 1, 2011 and will reopen Tuesday,  August 2, 2011.

Calgary Transit
Calgary Transit will provide a Sunday level of service on Heritage Day, Monday, August 1, 2011. Regular service will resume on Tuesday, August 2, 2011.

LRT Maintenance: Heritage Station  to Chinook Station
Due to maintenance on the ballast (rock) under the rails of both inbound and outbound tracks, there will be no CTrain service between Heritage and Chinook stations Saturday through Monday. Shuttle bus service will be provided between the stations for CTrain customers wishing to continue their trips northbound and southbound via the CTrain.

Brentwood Station
Due to maintenance on the surface of the station platform, CTrains will operate on one track in both directions. Minor delays may occur.

Whitehorn Station
Due to maintenance on the railing of the pedestrian bridge as well as repairs to the roof of the station, CTrains will operate on one track in both directions. Minor delays may occur.

Erlton/Stampede Station
Beginning Friday, July 29, 2011, construction will begin on the Erlton/Stampede Station. This work is being done to prepare for future four-car CTrains on Calgary’s LRT system. Construction will take approximately five months to complete.

Station improvements will include a lengthened CTrain platform to accommodate four-car trains, improved accessibility and improved lighting.

Please note: To conduct the work safely and efficiently, it is necessary to close the south ramp access starting Friday, July 29, 2011. This closure will be in effect throughout construction. The station will remain open during construction and users can gain access through the north entrance to the platform.
