Preliminary grading work for the Rocky Ridge/Royal Oak and Tuscany LRT Extension has just begun.
Although LRT construction is not scheduled to begin until 2012, The City has chosen to take advantage of the material available from the Stoney Trail/Crowchild Trail interchange construction and use it to build up the Tuscany Park and Ride site. This will save time and money for both The City and the Province as a result of reduced transport and storage costs.
The project will also be hosting two upcoming Open Houes to provide more information to the public about the LRT Extension. The first Open House is to be on June 10 from 5-8pm at hte Rocky Ridge Ranch Homeowners Association located at 10709 Rocky Ridge Blvd NW. The second is to be held on Tuesday, June 15 from 5-8pm at hte Tuscany Elementary School located at 990 Tuscany Drive NW.
Attendees will have an opportunity to view preliminary landscaping and pathway connections plans, the final station design and updated parking facility layouts, and to provide comment on the proposed station name. Transportation Infrastructure staff will be in attendance to answer questions about the project.
