City warns of ramp closure, traffic disruptions on Calgary’s Crowchild Trail

The City of Calgary is warning drivers of major disruptions to major routes over the next couple of weeks as construction ramps up on Crowchild Trail.

For the upgrading project, workers will reconfigure westbound 10 Avenue S.W. to northbound Crowchild Trail ramp.

From June 13 at 10 p.m. to June 28 at 5 a.m., the westbound 10 Avenue S.W. to northbound Crowchild Trail ramp will be closed.

After that is done, the newly-reconfigured westbound 10 Avenue S.W. ramp will temporarily merge onto the right-hand side of Crowchild Trail, according to the city.

The westbound Bow Trail to northbound Crowchild Trail ramp will continue to come up into its own lane on the far left-hand side of Crowchild Trail as it does now, the city explained in a news release on Wednesday.

Construction on Calgary’s Crowchild Trail on May 24, 2019.

By the end of summer, both ramps will be reconfigured and the 10 Avenue S.W. merge condition onto Crowchild Trail will be eliminated.

Traffic from the 10 Avenue S.W. and Bow Trail ramps will join together and enter northbound Crowchild Trail as a dedicated, added right-hand lane, the city said.
