The Story

The West Calgary Ring Road project involves the design and construction of the North Section of the West Calgary Ring Road. The project will include:

• Approximately 3 km of a new six- and eight-lane divided freeway between Highway 1 (Trans-Canada Highway) and the Old Banff Coach Road;
• The reconstruction of 5 km of Highway 1;
• The reconstruction of 1.0 kilometre of Valley Ridge Boulevard Northwest;
• The construction of 20 bridges and two interchanges: the Highway 1 Interchange and the Valley Ridge Boulevard Northwest Interchange, and one flyover.

The entire Calgary Ring Road will provide more than 100 km of free-flow travel around the city, improving access to hospitals, schools, workplaces and recreation and reducing congestion within the city.
