West Calgary Ring Road
The west segment of the Calgary Ring Road (CRR) will run south along the west side of the city from Highway 1 (16 Avenue NW) to west of 69 Street SW on Glenmore Trail/Highway 8. The West Calgary Ring Road (W-CRR) is approximately 9 kilometres long. It will be located primarily on the existing Transportation Utility Corridor (TUC) already owned by the provincial government, with some additional small parcels of land being purchased.
An additional 5 kilometres of connector road upgrades will be included in the overall CRR project.
