Alberta Transportation will be implementing the full closure of the Highway 8 and 101 Street intersection on Friday, September 17th. As of this date, this intersection will close permanently. On-site signage and marked detours are deployed onsite to provide advanced warning and help drivers navigate through this area. For further details, please view the travel advisory here and the attached construction notice.

Until construction of the West Calgary Ring Road is completed, alternate north-south routes include 69th Street, Sarcee Trail and Highway 22 (Cowboy Trail). Old Banff Coach Road, Township Road 242 (17th Avenue) and the Trans-Canada Highway (16th Avenue) are available east-west connections into the city. Drivers will need to adjust their commutes accordingly, allow additional time to navigate through construction zones, and reference City of Calgary Traffic Map and 511 Alberta before traveling.

Highway 22 Detour for SR1 Bridge Construction

Location: Highway 22 between Township Road 242 and Springbank Road (view map)

Timeframe: May 2, 2022 to October 20, 2025

Description: Construction on the Highway 22 bridge detour will begin the week of May 30 to allow for bridge construction along the original Highway 22 road alignment over the future diversion channel.

The detour will be built on the east side of Highway 22. Bridge construction is located midway between Springbank Road and Highway 8, along Highway 22.

Northbound and southbound traffic speeds will be reduced to 50km/h through the detour to ensure the safety of commuters and construction crews. The public can expect minor delays for short periods during the construction of the detour and in particular, for the construction and paving of the tie-ins, before the traffic shift is implemented.

During paving of the detour, flaggers will be present to assist in directing traffic, and to limit travel disruptions.

Once implemented, the detour posted speed reduction will be 50km/h for approximately 500 metres of Highway 22.

The work is being completed by Graham Construction & Engineering Inc. & Vinci Infrastructure on behalf of the Alberta Transportation’s SR1 Project. Inquiries can be directed to Hubert LeMiere of Vinci Infrastructure Canada Limited at 1-306-209-2121 or Hubert.LeMiere@vinci-construction.com.
