Construction begins on TransCanada Highway / Sarcee Trail Interchange

With site preparation nearly complete, construction is now underway on the TCH/Sarcee Trail Interchange.

During the initial stages of construction, traffic will continue to move normally. There are no construction zone speed limit reductions. However, drivers are asked to take caution and watch for construction vehicles leaving and entering Sarcee Trail. Advisory signs are in place.

Currently construction is taking place off of the main roadways.

Wilson Gardens

The Wilson Gardens exit to southbound Sarcee Trail will be closed as of April 21st through the duration of the construction.

Bridge Detour

As of May 1, drivers will notice a small shift on the northbound to eastbound ramp to a 150-metre stretch of pavement. This will allow work to begin on the east bridge. The speed limit on this ramp will continue to be 30 km/hour. However, construction zone speed penalties will apply.

Minimizing Construction Impacts

The majority of the interchange work will take place off the existing roadways. This strategy will minimize the need for any full road closures or major detours. We anticipate there may be a need for short duration lane closures and speed reductions as we complete ramp connections, the existing bridge rehabilitation, and other features throughout the project.

Our goal is to minimize traffic impacts as much as possible.
The TCH-Sarcee Interchange is a joint project between The City of Calgary and Trinity. For continued updates on the project, please visit TrinityHills.ca/TCHSarcee.

Message from Winsport

With the 2015-16 winter season wrapped up, WinSport would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.

Although the mild winter weather provided some challenges, we are tremendously excited by the number of families that were active on our ski and snowboard hill throughout the season.

We would also like to take this opportunity to inform you of some exciting news. WinSport is currently embarking on a plan to build a tube park on the WinSport campus, which would provide additional opportunities for families to stay active during the winter months.

It is anticipated that the tube park will open next winter. We are currently proceeding with the necessary approvals through the City of Calgary. We will provide more details as they become available.

WinSport hopes all of our neighbours come out to the park this the summer to take advantage of our summer activities and return next winter to enjoy our winter activities.

Thank you again for your ongoing support.

Barry Heck
President and CEO, WinSport
