The Southwest Calgary Ring Road project has not started yet, and it’ll be a many years before it is completed but that doesn’t mean we can’t go on a virtual drive of it before then. Watching the video explains why the Southwest Ring Road has a mega budget of $5 Billion with 37 bridges along the route, crossing both the Elbow River and Fish Creek.

The virtual drive starts at the current terminus of the NW Ring Road at the Trans Canada Highway and snakes its weigh on the western edge of Calgary to connect with 69th street (West Calgary Ring Road) then continues on in the second video all the way to Macleod Trail in the south.

West Calgary Ring Road:
15 km of six and eight-lane divided roadway
29 bridges, including bridges over the Bow River and the Elbow River on Highway 8
7 interchanges

Southwest Calgary Ring Road:
16 km of six and eight-lane divided ring road
37 bridges, including bridges over the Elbow River and Fish Creek
