Northwest Calgary Connector
ATCO is proposing to install approximately 14 km of natural gas pipeline that will run along the northwest leg of Stoney Trail within the Transportation/Utility Corridor (TUC) and then along 85th Street NW from Scenic Bow Road to Township Road 261A. As well, we are going to be building four above ground facilities as part of the Northwest Calgary Connector.
Currently the Northwest Calgary Connector is proposed to begin construction at the end of 2020. Pre-construction activities have already begun, this includes surveying, environmental assessments, geotechnical work and stakeholder consultation.
Spring 2018 to Fall 2020 - Pre-installation activities
Fall 2020 - Construction scheduled to start
Summer 2021 - Restoration activities scheduled to start
Along Stoney Trail within the Transportation/Utility Corridor (TUC) and then along 85th Street NW from Scenic Bow Road to Township Road 261A.
How this will affect you
Residents in the area may notice an increase in construction traffic, noise associated with construction and potentially dust from the installation of the new pipeline.
Public consultation along the pipeline route started in spring of 2018. Consultants have been going door to door to speak with residents about the project and answer questions.
We hosted open houses on May 30, 2018 at Bearspaw Christian School and June 20, 2018 at Lynx Ridge Golf Course.
Door to door consultation was completed for all adjacent residents in 2018.
Construction Timeline: Fall 2020 - Summer 2021
Location: Along northwest section of Stony Trail (in the TUC), then North along 85 Street NW from Scenic Bow Road to Township Road 261A
