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.

In 2015, ENMAX Power Corporation began construction on an underground distribution duct bank from the new ENMAX No. 35 Substation located near 90 Avenue in South Glenmore Park to ENMAX No. 6 Substation located at 16300 – 37 Street SW.
The majority of the duct bank has been installed from Anderson Road to 146 Avenue SW. The Woodbine off leash dog area and pathway will remain closed to accommodate the remaining construction. Pathway closures will continue to be updated on the
City of Calgary Pathway Closures website and on the signs posted along the pathway.
The remaining work is as follows:
Road crossing at 130 Avenue SW
Installing electrical cable in the duct bank system (north and south of 130 Avenue SW)
Road crossing at Anderson Road SW west of the pedestrian bridge
Road crossing at 37 Street SW (near the 300 block of Woodbriar Place SW)
TBD: waiting on Ministerial Consent and Permits
Restoring the pathway and berm adjacent to 37 Street SW (Community of Woodbine)
Construction cannot proceed prior to the issuance of permits from Alberta Transportation however ENMAX is working with the Alberta Transportation and KGL (the road builder) on prioritizing distribution relocation work to accommodate the road construction timelines. ENMAX’s construction dates will be updated in the above table as they become available.
ENMAX is relocating distribution facilities to accommodate future road plans at Glenmore Trail and 37 Street SW. All distribution facilities will be relocated within The City of Calgary property and the Transportation Utility Corridor. This work is scheduled to be complete in May.
ENMAX is beginning underground distribution relocation work on the west side of the Glenmore Trail and 37 Street SW interchange. Somerville Construction, on behalf of ENMAX Power will be working at 37 Street SW by Lakeview Drive beginning on August 8, 2017. There will be traffic accommodations in place as crews install underground electrical utilities across 37 Street SW.
For the most up-to-date information on traffic and road closures visit the City of Calgary
traffic report and road closures website.
Once the road crossing at 37 Street and Lakeview Drive SW is complete, crews will continue installing underground electrical utilities on the north boulevard of Lakeview Drive SW. Please refer to the below map for work area.

Although the duct bank installation is complete additional remediation work may be required. This work will take place in the spring of 2017.
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.
