Site Clearing along Highway 8
Activity and Location: As preliminary construction continues for the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR), KGL Constructors will be clearing vegetation in the road right-of-way along Highway 8 near the communities of Discovery Ridge, Sienna Hills and Springbank Hill. This includes areas around the intersection of Discovery Ridge Boulevard and 69 Street S.W.
Site impacts are expected to include:
- Heavy equipment removing trees, bushes and other vegetation
- An increase in truck and equipment traffic
- An increase in noise during working hours
The trees along the front entrance roadway of Discovery Ridge will be left in place until full construction begins in the spring. As well, a section of vegetation on the east side of Discovery Ridge Boulevard S.W. will be undisturbed. These spots have been delineated on the included map.
Signs will be posted on pedestrian walks in the area to notify the public of the activity and a full-time spotter will be on site to alert workers of pedestrian traffic.
Scheduled Implementation Date: January 20, 2017
Scheduled Completion Date: February 3, 2017
Hours of Work: 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
For your safety, please obey all construction signs and traffic control personnel when travelling through the area.
