Transportation Improvement Program 2020

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. Design work is underway, with the majority of construction scheduled for 2020 and substantial completion planned for July 2021.

Construction Impacts - Updated July 7, 2020

At this time we are still moving ahead with capital projects, this project involves upgrades to critical deep utility infrastructure, which are needed in the future. We are following the direction of the provincial health authority and working with contractors to adjust their health & safety plan accordingly. All local businesses in the area are open unless otherwise noted due to COVID-19.

  • Paving on Benchlands Trail is scheduled to take place July 13-15. Expect delays and detours during paving.
