The final construction contract for the West Calgary Ring Road project has been awarded to Calgary Safelink Partners for $277 million. Construction will commence this summer on the south portion of the road, which is expected to be completed in 2024.
“The ring road is a critical project that has been years in the making and Calgarians have been waiting decades for it to be completed,” said Ric McIver, Minister of Transportation. “When construction wraps up, the ring road will provide more than 100 kilometres of free-flow travel, making it faster and easier for Calgarians and job creators to get around Alberta’s largest city. Most importantly, this major infrastructure project will help get Albertans back to work by supporting thousands of much-needed jobs.”
Another milestone was recently marked by the completion of about 80 per cent of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road, which is on schedule to be completed in fall 2021. A portion of the road will open this fall.
