ENMAX No.47 Substation Access Road Revision

Project Overview

ENMAX Power Corporation (ENMAX) owns and operates No.47 Substation, located in the Stoney Trail Transportation Utility Corridor east of Evansford Road NW. ENMAX currently accesses this substation via an access road off 14 Street NW.

Alberta Transportation (AT) has informed ENMAX that we can no longer use 14 Street NW to access the No. 47 Substation, because it now conflicts with their design standards.  AT design standards do not permit access roads in close proximity to interchanges along freeways. ENMAX must therefore access the substation from another location. Several options were considered, and a new access road at the north end of Evansford Road NW, was determined to be the most viable option.

Project Details

ENMAX Power Corporation has received approval from the Alberta Utilities Commission to construct a new access road for ENMAX No. 47 Substation located in the Stoney Trail Transportation Utility Corridor east of Evansford Road NW.

The project requires the construction of a 200 metre access road and installation of a new City of Calgary Standard Emergency Vehicle gate. ENMAX anticipates accessing the substation once per month for general maintenance and annually for a full inspection with a one tonne truck or utility truck.

Construction will begin in late November and be complete by the end of the year. Some remediation work will occur in the spring 2017 when weather permits.
