CH2M Canada Ltd.
City of Calgary – Transportation Infrastructure
This project involves the construction of a new six lane Glenmore Trail SE alignment from 18th Street Interchange to Barlow Trail SE. This includes a new interchange at Glenmore Trail and Ogden Road, a five-lane, 65 metre long bridge, and as well as a new eight-lane, 125 metre long at-grade separated crossing over the Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway tracks and the Western Headworks Canal. Graham is self-performing the structure work, and has successfully erected seventy pre-cast concrete NU girders. Graham is coordinating with the City of Calgary to support the traffic signals and accommodate traffic during construction. Subtrades are completing the earthworks, utilities, MSE and noise wall, lighting and ITS, roadworks and landscaping scopes of work.
Over 40,000 vehicles per day travel through this section of Glenmore Trail. There are significant impacts to traffic congestion due to the current at-grade railway crossings. Once the project is complete, this traffic will be free-flowing. This work also provides infrastructure upgrades necessary for the upcoming Green Line Light Rail Transit, and sets the stage for a new interchange at Barlow Trail SE and Glenmore Trail.
