We have received an update from the City of Calgary that construction on Balmoral Circus Park is resuming. The pathway through the park will be closed starting Friday, March 10 and detours will be in place for pedestrians and cyclists.
Construction crews will be mobilizing at the site on Monday, March 13 to begin the underground work. This work is expected to take two weeks. Once that work is complete, the site will remain closed for construction.
Although construction is always weather-dependent, we expect to complete work on Balmoral Circus Park by Fall 2023.
What to expect during construction
Some noise, dust and vibrations can be expected throughout construction, along with increased activity at the site. Every effort will be made to limit noise and vibration to the best of our ability, and we thank residents for their understanding and patience.
2 Street NW between 18 Avenue and 20 Avenue NW will be closed to cyclists during construction. Detour signage will be provided so people who wheel (bike, scoot, etc.) can still travel through the area.
There will be impacts to sections of sidewalk throughout construction. Temporary detours will be in place so people can still walk through the area.
The two alleys immediately north and south of Balmoral Circus Park will remain open throughout construction. However, access points at 2 Street NW will be restricted intermittently. Access to the north alley between 1 Street and 2 Street will be restricted for a limited time to accommodate electrical work. Updates and closure information will be provided prior to this work starting.
