This project is part of the Province of Alberta's Southwest Calgary Ring Road Project.

This project includes:

  • removing approximately 2.5 kilometres (1.5 miles) of 240 kilovolt (kV)/138 kV double circuit steel lattice transmission line from Tsuu T'ina Nation land and relocating it underground within the Transportation/Utility Corridor (TUC) south of Glenmore Trail and west of 37 Street Southwest
  • rebuilding approximately one kilometre (0.6 miles) of two pole 138 kV transmission line from Tsuu T'ina Nation land and relocating as a double circuit 138 kV transmission line on the south side of Highway 8 within the TUC
  • relocating approximately 0.5 kilometres (0.3 miles) of a 240 kV double circuit transmission line further west along Sarcee Trail
  • reconfiguring existing transmission lines at the Sarcee Substation to accommodate the proposed interchange at Sarcee Trail and Highway 8
