Stoney Trail (Ring Road) – Challenges and Success


Ric McIver (MLA)

Presentation Topic:

Stoney Trail is a 69-kilometre (43 mi) freeway in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Signed as Highway 201, it is a ring road that is approximately 70% complete, serving as an important bypass around the city and an alternate route to the congested Highway 1 (Trans-Canada Highway) and Highway 2 (Deerfoot Trail). Stoney Trail begins in the city’s northwest at Highway 1 near Canada Olympic Park, running north across the Bow River and Crowchild Trail. It winds through neighbourhoods of northwest Calgary to Deerfoot Trail and the Queen Elizabeth II Highway. Turning south, the freeway again intersects Highway 1, crosses Glenmore Trail, and curves west at the neighbourhood of Mahogany. Beyond a second major interchange with Deerfoot Trail, it descends across the Bow River and ends at Macleod Trail in the city’s southeast.

As imagined, the complexities with building one of the largest infrastructure projects that Calgary and the province have seen, with intermingling of Federal, Provincial, and Municipal governements, made for some large challenges.  Rick will be sharing his experiences on how the City / Province managed through such a large project, with many key stakeholders and invested parties (including the tax payers and Aboriginal groups).  He will also talk about what success’s and what challenges they faced during the approval & construction phase, funding structure and complexities within, and experiences with mangaging contractors to ensure the project stayed on course and was delivered as intented to all Calgarians.
