There's a bunch of legal speak in section 400 of Schedule 18 (huge document, avoid on mobile)

Quote:
During the Operating Period, the Infrastructure shall be maintained in conformance with any allowable tolerances as specified for individual performance requirements, subject to the following:
- If measurements indicate that the Infrastructure no longer complies with the performance requirements but falls within the permitted tolerance(s), the Contractor will have the option of correcting the Infrastructure such that it conforms to the performance requirements or foregoing the repairs and paying Payment Adjustments. The option of foregoing repairs shall not be allowed at the handback of the Infrastructure to the Department at the end of the Term.
- If measurements indicate that the Infrastructure no longer complies with the performance requirements and also exceeds any allowable tolerances, the Contractor shall repair the Infrastructure so that it conforms to the performance requirements.
Given the slumps that have been allowed to occur in the NE which was also a P3, and on certain sections of Henday, I'm under the impression that either they aren't significant enough to necessitate immediate repair, or the contractors have reached some type of understanding with AB Trans beyond the scope of the DBFO agreements precluding them from repair or allowing it to be postponed.

Blue - 201 - Stoney Trail
Green - 202 - East Freeway / Airdrie Bypass
Yellow - 22X - Marquis of Lorne Trail, Spruce Meadows Trail. This section of the road already has too many names, and it's never felt like Stoney to me..
Red - 208 - Tsuu T'ina Trail




I think you're right on.

QE2 can get congested at peak times in Airdrie but that is it and with the future overpasses which need to be built pretty much right now a lot of that stress will be removed.

all the traffic from Edmonton will use the bypass and you may end up with the same problem in the future. even people in Airdrie would use it. considering the rapid growth. the Blue would have problems as well if you want to access HW2, no ? or HW1 , the bypass a toll HW maybe ?

Everyday during the afternoon rush time, posted highway speeds northbound QE2 between the weigh scale and Yankee Valley Blvd can't be maintained in the curb lane and even sometimes in the middle lane, accessing the interchange. Because I live in the centre of the west side, it's even better for me sometimes to stay in the innermost lane at posted or greater speeds and access Veterans Blvd instead! Maybe a bypass as you have drawn would be a good idea for those accessing points north or east of Airdrie!

Once 40th ave is done a lot of traffic getting off at Yankee will now get off at 40th ave. I'm over in Woodside so I get off at 567(veterans) all the time. We're looking at years though and it will be getting worse before better for sure.

Plans could have & probably have changed since building the East Freeway - these "Ultimate Stage" plans from AB Transportation show the East Freeway continuing North past the Stoney Curve. I recall hearing about an Airdrie Bypass long time ago, but haven't seen any actual plans beyond this and some mentions in development plans around the Balzac/Cross Iron Mills area. Maybe 5seconds knows more about it...

http://www.transportation.alberta.ca...ion/ef-m6u.pdf

Given the amount of logistics and distribution centres and manufacturing in the SE industrial - It kinda makes sense to have this bypass as it would take some of that large truck traffic off the QEII through Airdrie and Northern half of Deerfoot.

That east freeway extension is so far beyond the back burner that there's probably nothing concrete for it. They'll start thinking about that around the time they start thinking about the outer ring road.

Yea, not sure how much has been done on that East Freeway extension north to Airdrie. I have this from about a decade ago when they were designing the NE part of the ring road:

Hopefully it's not a high priority, there are about a thousand road projects which should be ahead of the line than an Airdrie bypass.

The repairs have been completed and they did a really nice job. It's much smoother now.

New maps released for the Glenmore/Highway 8/Sarcee/37th street area: temporary detours and staging for accommodating construction of the SW Ring Road.

http://www.swcrrproject.com/traffic-updates/

I foresee access to the Grey Eagle casino being a problem for some in Lakeview, given that access from the north and east appears to come from partway down 37th street at the new roundabout.

Interesting reworking of the Sarcee/Glenmore/H8 intersection too.

No problem!

This shows the new roundabout on 37th street in Lakeview (south of 54th ave), the extension of Grey Eagle drive from the casino/hotel/entertainment venue to the roundabout, and the start of Tsuut'ina Parkway from Glenmore south into the reserve. KGL is saying this will be in effect by as soon as September.



What I'm seeing (unless I'm reading this wrong) is that access to Grey Eagle will be provided from eastbound Glenmore via a new exit ramp, and that access from the north and from westbound Glenmore will be via 37th street and the new roundabout. Those exiting the Grey Eagle will be able to head north onto the new Tsuut'ina Parkway, or go straight to the new roundabout on 37th.

This shows the new temporary intersection of Glenmore/Sarcee/Highway 8, moved north towards Richmond Road:

Thanks MT - I've seen his before but it's nice to know where to find it.
Also thanks 5 secs for your great info as usual.

Thanks!

The City just released a FAQ about the ring road crossing of the Elbow River:

http://www.calgary.ca/_layouts/cocis...-July-2017.pdf

In short: the new design meets all flood requirements. Seems likely a response for the group that is fighting the berm-style crossing.

And now the City has removed the FAQ on the Elbow river crossing. It's not showing on their webpage, but the link above is still valid.

Wonder why it was removed.
