ENMAX Highway 8 (application under AUC review) 7.82 Relocation Project and
101 Street Transmission line 7.82 Relocation Project (approved)

Project Overview

In March 2019, ENMAX began its participant involvement program for the Highway 8 Project and 101 Street Projects. Alberta Transportation directed ENMAX Power Corporation (ENMAX) to relocate its existing 138 kV 7.82L transmission line (existing line) to accommodate the construction of the West Calgary Ring Road. The proposed relocation will be affected by two separate projects: the relocation of the existing line running south along Highway 8 and the relocation of the existing line running parallel to 101 Street SW. 

As part of the participant involvement program for the proposed projects, ENMAX received additional information and feedback from Alberta Transportation and other stakeholders. ENMAX reevaluated and made refinements to the two route alternatives it originally identified in March 2019, and has identified a potential third route for the Highway 8 Project.   ENMAX does not propose any refinements to the 101 Street Project.
