TransCanada Highway – Sarcee Trail Interchange Completion Update

Though construction is still ongoing, Trinity is pleased to announce that the TransCanada Highway (TCH) – Sarcee Trail Interchange project is nearing completion.
 
Traffic movements will remain in a temporary condition until the remainder of the construction work is completed. This work includes:

  • The completion of the centre roundabout with access to and from the south
  • Minor work on the north side of TransCanada Highway
  • Access to the Medicine Hill development

  • All remaining pond construction work
  • The pedestrian underpass

 
Due to the construction, there will be rotating short duration lane closures and traffic delays. These closures and delays will facilitate the final paving and road marking work into October. However, all ramps and accesses are planned to be open by mid-to- late October.
 
We understand the frustration construction can cause, and our construction teams work diligently to minimalize the lane closures as much as possible to ensure the least amount of inconvenience to Calgary commuters.
 
We plan to have access to the Medicine Hill community open to the public by late 2018.
 

TransCanada Highway – Sarcee Trail Interchange Bridge Rehabilitation Temporary Conditions

Following the completion of the current interchange work in October, the roadway over the existing Sarcee Trail overpass bridge will have some temporary conditions in place. These conditions will be limited to the bridge deck and it’s approaches and consist of:

  • Two lanes for all southbound traffic (reduced width)
  • One lane for northbound traffic into Bowness (reduced width)
  • One physically separated lane for northbound traffic destined for the westbound TransCanada Highway (reduced width)


 
These temporary conditions will be in place until The City commences work on the planned rehabilitation project for this bridge. This work is tentatively scheduled for the 2018 construction season during which The City will undertake additional temporary traffic accommodation measures, including lane reductions, to facilitate the work during that time.
 
After completion of the rehabilitation work, the bridge will have:

  • Two lanes for all southbound traffic
  • Two lanes for northbound traffic into Bowness
  • One physically separated lane for northbound traffic destined for the westbound TransCanada Highway

 
We want to keep everyone informed on any updates to the project, so once more definitive dates and further temporary traffic accommodation measures are determined, information will be sent out.
