Truck Detour in Ramsay

Late yesterday, in preparation for Green Line construction work on 11 ST SE near the intersection of 21 AV SE, our Roads staff determined that the on-street closure area that is required for construction would limit the ability for large truck traffic traveling eastbound on 21 AV SE to safely make a right-hand turn onto 11 ST SE southbound.  As such, in order to accommodate large truck traffic for the area businesses that rely on this route, we will be instituting a temporary truck detour route to accommodate large truck traffic. The detour route will redirect large truck traffic westbound along 23 AV SE southbound onto Spiller RD SE. The detour will only be for truck traffic that that typically travels eastbound on 21 AV SE to 11 ST SE and will not impact left or right-hand turn access from 11 ST SE onto 21 AV SE westbound. Please see the attached detour map for reference.

This temporary detour is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, June 17 at 6AM and be in place for a two week period. All affected area businesses that rely on large truck shipping and receiving have been notified by the Green Line team about this detour. Area businesses have expressed consideration of how a detour may impact area residents and have asked that the Ramsay Community Association be made aware of this detour.

UPDATE:  30 KM  speed limit reduction will be applicable to all vehicles using this route. 

If you have any questions or concerns about this temporary detour or receive inquiries from community residents, you are welcome to share the above details and contact information for Stuart Gripton – Sr. Access Planner – City of Calgary – Green Line Stakeholder Relations (Email: Tel:403-312-2682) if they wish to reach out to him directly.
