I took a drive through there a couple of nights ago and I have to say this is the kind of creative thinking that engineers should be using for establishing detours where possible.
At the bottom of Tuscany Hill (by Home Depot) they've constructed a roundabout and extended that road down past the Soccer Dome to Bearspaw Dam Road. So, if you are travelling south on Stoney Trail and want Nose Hill Drive East, you exit onto Nose Hill West and continue around the round about and head south to Bearspaw Dam Road East. Then turn left onto 87th Street North, then right onto Nose Hill Drive East.
The same for travelling Stoney North and wanting Nose Hill Drive West. You exit onto Nose Hill East, right on 87th, right on Tuscany Hill. I admit it's a bit of an inconvenience for Tuscany / Scenic Acres folk, but brilliant if you ask me. In fact, I hope even after they open the interchange, they keep the currently-labelled temporary road in place as an alternative route.
