Summer is finally here, officially kicking off with summer solstice on June 21, 2015! With Calgary's short summer season, The City maximizes efficiency by packing a lot of construction into a few summer months.
Over the next few days, we'll be highlighting The City’s major transportation construction projects for Summer 2015. In Calgary's northeast communities you'll notice action taking place around Rundle C-Train station and McKnight Boulevard that will have benefits for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike.
Rundle C-Train Station - pedestrian bridge, ramp & stair replacement
Ramps will be closing mid-June for upgrading and re-opening in December 2015. A new bridge is part of the construction and will be lowered to meet the station. Stairs will be replaced and landscaping improved. During construction, the station and stairs will remain open. For more details, visit the project page.
McKnight Boulevard widening & reconstruction (2015-2016)
Kicking off in mid-July, widening and reconstruction increases McKnight Boulevard from four to six lanes between 12 Street N.E. and 19 Street N.E. These new lanes will increase route capacity by about 50 per cent and provide additional lanes from Deerfoot to Metis Trail. For more details, visit the project page.
Stay tuned for updates on the other quadrants throughout this week.
