On Thursday evening November 24 the newly renovated Bearspaw Lions Hall was packed with well over 100 people from South Bearspaw (people living south of the 1A highway who use 12 mile Coulee Road). Many thanks to the people in the South Bearspaw Working Group who helped notify people and assisted with this meeting.
I hosted the meeting to inform residents of plans for this critical City Road that borders Rocky View County. The plan to twin the road from the 1A highway through to TWP Rd. 252 / 80th avenue was presented very well by Matthew Jones from Macdonald Corp. They are the project managers. The City of Calgary is also involved in the plans and the work.
The work will begin in the spring of 2017. The intent is to finish the work before freeze up 2017.
We were informed that traffic flow management during construction will be a key priority for this critical access road.
A number of questions were asked and answered. Twenty-four comment/question cards were also received that I will be forwarding to City and County administration and roads staff.
One of my concerns is that Rocky View residents will continue to have safe access to the road and that emergency access routes will be (officially) available throughout the project and beyond. Summary
I will work to keep the community advised of new developments through email and my regular community meetings. Please call or email if you have questions and please pass this on to your neighbors.
