Projects > Highway 8 7.82 Relocation Project
In March 2019, ENMAX Power Corporation (ENMAX Power) began its participant involvement program for the Highway 8 Project and 101 Street Project. Alberta Transportation directed ENMAX Power to relocate its existing 138 kV 7.82L transmission line (existing line) to accommodate the construction of the West Calgary Ring Road. The 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 two projects, ENMAX Power received additional information and feedback from Alberta Transportation and other stakeholders. ENMAX Power 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 Power does not propose any refinements to the 101 Street Project.
Construction was completed in late-October 2021. ENMAX crews and contractors will remain on-site through November 2021 to complete site cleanup. Remediation efforts will occur in Spring 2022 (weather permitting).
Thank you for showing an interest in the project and sharing your questions and concerns with the project team during the open houses in March and June 2019.
Based on stakeholder feedback we have updated our project materials. Below are the poster boards shared at the June open houses.
