Major paving projects rolling out

The City of Calgary’s Construction season is well underway, thanks in part to a mild winter. City crews and contracted forces will be working on over $39 million worth of pavement rehabilitation projects at over 140 locations around Calgary this summer and fall.

Some locations of note for this summer’s construction season include: (See interactive map)
  • 14 Street N.W. from Memorial Drive to 21 Avenue N.W.
  • Northmount Drive N.W. from Cambrian Drive to 4 Street N.W.
  • Macleod Trail from 34 Avenue to 58 Avenue S.E.
  • Bonaventure Drive S.E. from Canyon Meadows Drive to Anderson Road S.E.
  • Edmonton Trail from Memorial Drive to 32 Avenue N.E.
  • 36 Street N.E. from Memorial Drive to McKnight Boulevard N.E.

Every effort is made to schedule work during off peak hours and nighttime whenever possible. For more information on traffic closures, you can visit Calgary.ca/trafficinfo, or follow us on Twitter for up to the minute closure information @yyctransport.

Citizens will also notice some changes to our paving website, located at Calgary.ca/paving. This year we’ve added an interactive map that displays more details on individual projects than ever before. This map displays both City and contracted projects, as well as microsurfacing work planned for the 2016 season. Below the map there are also a number of project pages related to the major projects planned for 2016, and links to the major projects being undertaken by Transportation Infrastructure.


Finally we would like to take this opportunity to remind Calgarians that the road is our office. We ask that you please adhere to all signage posted and help our workers get their jobs done safely and effectively. This not only includes slowing down in construction zones, but also moving your vehicles when you see no parking signs prior to road paving. Road construction is a very demanding profession, and with your help and patience we can make the job go as smoothly as possible.
