The Story

The Deerfoot & 212th Ave Interchange project involved the widening of Deerfoot trail South of 196th Ave SE, site grading, paving, street light installation, as well as signage and barricade installations. The bridge was constructed of pre-cast pre-stressed concrete NU Girders, 18 in total, in lengths of 45 meters and 48 meters. With this additional interchange leading from Deerfoot Trail, access to the South Health Campus is greatly improved. Surrounding emergency services, including access to the Seton Fire Hall No. 41 is also greatly improved.

The project allowed for the development of land in Seton, Rangeview and Cranston. It also greatly improved access to the South Health Campus and additional emergency services, the eventual terminus station for the Green Line LRT, and to commercial and office areas.

Brookfield Residential estimated that this project would support more than $4 billion in economic activity and approximately 25,000 jobs during development. Emergency services, including the Seton Fire Hall No. 41, was
enhanced for the surrounding communities. It also provides access to the eventual southern terminus station of the Green Line LRT. The interchange provides a secondary access point for Cranston and Seton, and is the first major road leading to the new Calgary community of Rangeview.
