Macleod Tr - 162 Ave SE Interchange, project update October 2016
The following update was received from the City of Calgary regarding the Interchange project at Macleod Trail and 162 Ave SE.
We will continue to update this page as updates are received.
The Macleod Trail and 162 Avenue South Interchange project will achieve a major milestone on the weekend of Oct. 15/16as Macleod Trail becomes a free-flow roadway underneath the partially completed 162 Avenue overpass.
The completed south side overpass will handle both east and west traffic over the next 12 months while crews construct the north side overpass. Pedestrian and cyclist access is also provided across Macleod Trail on the new overpass.
While the City is opening Macleod Trail to be free-flow, there will be no immediate access for approximately two weeks to eastbound Sun Valley Blvd. and westbound 162 Avenue from southbound Macleod Trail while off-ramp work is completed. The inconvenience of this southbound closure is a necessary part of achieving free-flow traffic on Macleod Trail a year earlier than originally planned.
