Macleod Trail / 162 Avenue Interchange – Construction Notice #9
Shawville Intersection Upgrades – closures, restrictions, detours – Spring 2017
As construction of the new interchange overpass at Macleod Trail and 162 Avenue continues, work is also taking place to upgrade the intersection at Shawville Blvd. and 162 Avenue. The upgrades include widening the roadway to accommodate dual-left turns, improving traffic flow and increasing the efficiency of the intersection for pedestrians, transit users and motorists. Crews are also revitalizing the pedestrian connectivity at the intersection to provide better accessibility to the pathways that cross the overpass. During the rest of April and into May, the closures and restrictions include:
intermittent driveway closures
full driveway closures with alternate driveway accesses
closures of sections of sidewalks and road islands
temporary closures and relocations of Transit bus stops.
View the diagrams on the reverse page to see the closures, restrictions and detours in more detail. The project webpage, www.calgary.ca/macleod162ave, will be updated on a regular basis with details of the construction impacts.
