As many other Calgarians, I am excited to see the SW Ring Road move closer to reality.

It shortens my personal travel time and will ease congestion among my various frequented routes. Reduced commute times is what matters, even if the distance is a touch longer.  

The remaining sections to be developed are actually 2.

The first is the west side between Hwy 1 and Hwy 8 extending  Stoney Trail along the west side of COP beyond Cougar Ridge, West Springs, Aspen Woods, Springbank Hill and the Slopes.   Bow Trail to Trans Canada.

The second is from Hwy 8 to 22x which is what is called the SW Ring Road portion. The 2013 Agreement with the Tsuu T’ina Nation allows for this section to move forward. The images are from the published concept plan on the Alberta Transportation website as linked above.

The details of this huge project will change. Information here is what is available today.
