Airport Trail Interchanges Project Update
Summary: Utilities relocation begins March 16 with construction work starting in April
The City of Calgary has selected PCL Construction as the contractor to build the interchanges at 19 Street and Barlow Trail N.E. Work is expected to begin in Apr. 2020 and continue to 2022. Once construction begins, motorists and guests traveling to and from the airport will be encouraged to leave extra time in case of construction delays.
When construction begins on the interchanges this spring, here's what you can expect along Airport Trail, east of Deerfoot Trail:
- Reduced speed limits in construction zones (60 km/h unless otherwise indicated)
- Narrowed traffic lanes to make space for crews
- Intermittent lane closures as needed
- Lane shifts, re-alignments and new traffic patterns
www.calgary.ca/airporttrail will be the central location where YYC Crew, Team YYC and stakeholders can get information about construction schedules and detours.
In order to relocate ENMAX infrastructure out of the interchanges project footprint before construction begins, there will be nightly lane and ramp closures on Airport Trail at the Barlow Trail N.E. intersection Mar. 16-25 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. The eastbound ramp of Airport Trail to southbound Barlow will be closed at midnight. When the ramp is closed, drivers will be able to make a right turn at the intersection. See this map for more information.
