14 Street Ramp to Westbound Glenmore Trail Bridge Rehabilitation

Project update - October 2023

14 Street Ramp S.W. to Glenmore Trail

The construction on 14 Street Ramp S.W. to Glenmore Trail is now complete. Construction started in the spring of 2023 and was completed a few weeks ahead of schedule. The completion of this project ensures that the bridge’s service life could be extended by approximately 30 years, keeping the bridge safe and functional for Calgarians for years to come. Construction signage will be removed and both lanes are expected to be open for traffic in the comming weeks.

Thank you for your patience during this construction period. 

Background information

The three spans cast-in-place box girder bridge was built in 1978 and carries two traffic lanes across Glenmore Trail S.W. The physical condition of various elements of this bridge has declined to the point where work is required to keep the bridge in service.

The project aims at rehabilitating deteriorated bridge elements and extending the service life of the bridge. Maintaining bridges is key to minimizing deterioration and keeping drivers and Calgarians safe.

Scope of work

The rehabilitation work on the bridge structure included:

  • Traffic barrier replacement
  • Girders and deck repair
  • Substructure repair
  • Expansion joints replacement
  • New asphalt-wearing surface

Benefits

  • Improving the condition, appearance, and safety of the bridge for drivers
  • Extending the life of the bridge by over 30 years

Budget

The estimated investment for this project is $6.7 million. 

Project timeline

  • Spring 2023 - Construction Start
  • October 2023 - Construction Complete
