The interchange at Highway 2 and 40th Avenue was identified by the Province as a necessary project in the early 2000’s. In 2019, the project was ranked #2 in a study of critical North Calgary Regional Transportation projects.
Significant growth pressure and traffic congestion on local roadways led the City of Airdrie to move forward on this project in 2021. The $65 million project is on budget and on schedule for completion in the fall of 2023.
Once complete, the bridge over the QEII must be turned over to the Province and listed as a provincial asset as it sits within the provincial highway corridor. Alberta Budget 2023 includes $71 million to account for this asset. This is being called an accounting 'oddity'.
