Stoney Trail Extension Northeast Freeway

The Transportation Utility Corridor (TUC) was originally planned by the Province of Alberta and the City of Calgary in the late 1970s and is commonly referred to as the Calgary Ring Road. During the 1980s and 1990s the Province of Alberta, who is responsible for the development of the Ring Road, purchased most of the lands required for this TUC.

The Stoney Trail Extension Northeast Freeway, which forms the northeast link of the Ring Road, extends east from the Deerfoot Trail (Highway 2) to the eastern city limits, then south to 17 Avenue SE (Highway 1A).

Alberta Transportation undertook this portion of the ring road in a Public-Private Partnership. The contract was awarded to Stoney Trail General Partnership. Construction began in spring 2007 with the project opened to traffic on November 2, 2009. The project includes 21 kilometres of new four and six lane divided freeway and six interchanges. (The 96 Avenue Interchange is not currently open to traffic, this partial interchange will open when 96 Avenue is extended to the east of Stoney Trail by the City of Calgary).

Project Opened to Traffic – November 2, 2009
