Long weekend construction closures: May 20-23, 2016

Construction in full swing this long-weekend

Roads Construction work is an essential part in keeping Calgary’s roadways safe and in good condition. As construction zones are work spaces that often require lower speeds and narrowed lanes to maintain safety, motorists are reminded to slow down in construction zones or avoid these areas if possible.

While construction has been happening in our city for few months already, thanks to this year’s mild winter, the May long-weekend is officially the beginning of construction season.

In addition to some ongoing large infrastructure projects such as the Trans Canada Highway/ Bowfort Road N.W. Interchange, the Glenmore Trail and Ogden Road S.E. Interchange, Crowchild/Flanders Avenue Interchange , Macleod Trail / 162 Avenue S Interchange and the Government of Alberta’s Ivor Strong Bridge Rehabilitation on Deerfoot Trail S.E., there will be a number of smaller projects happening throughout Calgary this weekend that could have an impact on your commute.
