Transportation Improvement Program 2020 (TIP20) is a grouping of several approved projects for efficiency in design, procurement, and construction. These projects generally overlap in physical location, and all tie into the Bow Valley Trail / Benchlands Trail / Railway Ave intersection.
Construction Impacts - Updated April 13, 2021
Weekly updates will commence again in the spring when work has resumed. All local businesses in the area are open unless otherwise noted due to COVID-19.
- Work in all project areas has re-started. Expect crews to be working on Palliser Trail, the Benchlands overpass, the main intersection and Bow Valley Trail.
- Work on the Benchlands Trail overpass will begin towards the end of this week, or early next week. The first activity will be the removal of the concrete median on the bridge, creating the space to install the new multi-use pathway on the west side of the overpass. Once this work starts, the bridge will have single lane traffic in each direction with left turn bays for a period of up to two weeks. Please see diagram below for closure areas.
- Installation of the new traffic lights is underway. The new lights will be "near side" traffic lights, with the stop lines painted further back from the intersection. The design is similar to the photo below.
