Southwest Calgary Ring Road

ENMAX continues work on a multi-year project to relocate and add electrical infrastructure to accommodate the Government of Alberta’s Southwest Calgary Ring Road Project.

For the Government of Alberta to build the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (from 69 Street SW to Macleod Trail/Highway 2A) ENMAX is required to relocate infrastructure that is directly impacted by the road construction and install new services for future street and traffic lights. ENMAX is working with The Government of Alberta and its partners to determine the electrical infrastructure conflicts and new services required.

You can find more information on the Southwest Calgary Ring Road project at www.sw-crr.ca or www.calgary.ca
