Southwest Calgary Ring Road

​​Progress continues as the Government of Alberta and its partners work toward construction of the final leg of the Calgary Ring Road.

The completion of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (from 69 Street SW to Macleod Trail/Highway 2A) requires the relocation of ENMAX infrastructure that is directly impacted by the road construction. The Government of Alberta is working with ENMAX to help with their planning and design processes for relocation.

Underground distribution duct bank

A duct bank is a group of electrical conduits normally embedded in concrete that provide pathways and protection for electrical cables. Once constructed, the underground duct bank will allow ENMAX to replace, upgrade or repair the existing underground cables without excavating the entire length of the lines.
