Southwest Calgary Ring Road

Preliminary work for the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR) project has been underway since July 2016. Full construction will start in spring 2017. The project is expected to be complete in fall 2021.

 

The $1.42 billion project involves construction between Highway 8 (near the Elbow Springs Golf Club), and Macleod Trail SE, including reconstruction of Glenmore Trail from Sarcee Trail to east of 37 Street. This portion of the ring road is approximately 21 kilometres long.
