Calgary scores major road project hat trick

Calgary scores major road project hat trick
CITY OF CALGARY — The City of Calgary announced it has finished work on a trio of major road and bridge projects.

CALGARY, ALTA. — Some might call it a roadbuilding hat trick.

Calgary officials recently announced the completion of three major infrastructure reconstruction and rehabilitation projects.

 

Barlow Trail N.E. restoration and 16 Avenue N.E. bridge rehabilitation

In northeast Calgary, full-scale pavement reconstruction was completed along a 2.5 kilometre stretch of Barlow Trail N.E. from 4 Ave. to Sunridge Blvd. N.E., including rehabilitation of the 16 Avenue N.E. ramps connecting to Barlow Trail.

Crews worked on median and traffic signal improvements at 4 and 7 Avenue N.E. and a centre median was added south of 16 Avenue N.E. Various stormwater and drainage improvements were also completed as well as upgrades to street lighting throughout the project area. The project added a new multi-use pathway along Meridian Road N.E. north of Centre Avenue.

In addition to the improvements on Barlow Trail, crews rehabilitated the 16 Avenue bridge over Barlow Trail N.E., including installing new concrete barriers and bridge deck overlay, replacing expansion joints and bearings and completing structural repairs.

“Completing the 16 Avenue bridge rehabilitation in conjunction with the Barlow Trail project allowed us to use our resources more efficiently and mitigate construction impacts in the area,” explained Jason Lin, the project’s manager, in a statement. “Completion of these two critical life-cycle projects will help ensure these busy routes stay in good condition and improve the experience for travellers in the area for years to come.”

 

John Laurie Boulevard N.W. restoration and reconstruction

Crews also wrapped up road restoration work on John Laurie Boulevard N.W. from Shaganappi Trail to 14 Street, including full intersection reconstruction at Brisebois Drive N.W.

In addition to four kilometres of pavement rehabilitation to improve durability and reduce maintenance, improvements include replacement of damaged catch basins, manholes and streetlights, as well as safety enhancements through the realignment of the Many Owls Parking Lot entrance at Nose Hill Park and installation of high tension cable barriers along John Laurie Boulevard.

A new multi-use pathway connection and accessibility ramps at the northwest corner of the Shaganappi Trail and John Laurie Boulevard N.W. intersection was also completed in co-ordination with the project, providing a new connection from the community of Edgemont to Nose Hill Park and the Shaganappi Trail N.W. intersection. Other upgrades included pathway widening at the 19 Street and 14 Street N.W. interchange.

“It’s important to recognize that John Laurie Boulevard is a key route to many communities and destinations in northwest Calgary, for people travelling in many different ways,” said Adrian Tanase, the project’s manager. “Incorporating both road restoration and pathway improvements as part of this project not only improves safety for drivers, but also provides better, safer connections for pedestrians and cyclists.”

All three projects were delivered on time and on budget.
