Speaking at Calgary International Airport, Minister of Transport, Omar Alghabra, highlighted important progress that’s been reached for the expansion of the Calgary Airport Trail, which will improve access to and from the Calgary International Airport, while also boosting connectivity to the growing communities and commercial areas in northeast Calgary.
The progress includes:
- partial completion last year of the extension between 36 St. NE and 60 St. NE, with the remainder to be opened soon in conjunction with the completion of related interchanges;
- completion and opening last year of the Stoney Trail Ramp that connects to Ring Road; and,
- the start of interchange construction at 19 Street NE and Barlow Trail, which is slated for completion in 2022.
“I’m pleased with the progress that’s been made with the expansion of the Calgary Airport Trail,” stated Alghabra. “This construction project is creating real jobs for the middle class, while also providing Calgary with improved connections to move people and goods to and from the airport.”
