    • I think it’s the photo radar workers coffee room. lol. I got two tickets there before I finally clued in. They pose as city utility maintenance vans and such. Seriously, I’m not sure
      Just enjoying another day in paradise.

      • If I had to guess I'd say it has something to do with the automatic de-icing sprayers installed on that particular bridge. Purely speculation though.

        • I think Alex is right I vaguely remember them building it before the de-icing experiment

            Which is really too bad. Instead of getting ahead of the game, where they know they will need it, they will just wait until this area becomes a problem and will rush to get it done to try and fix a problem.
            LRT is our future, time to push forward.

            • Scope creep is real. Can't do everything or there's no way the $ will be approved.

              • There is no real need for the interchange yet.

                Scope creep is real... and so are budgets.

                • 135 Street/Anthony Henday Drive Connection

                  A future interchange is planned west of the existing 127 Street connection to Anthony Henday Drive to provide access to the Heritage Valley area to the south. The first 2 lanes of 135 Street will be constructed north of Ellerslie Road with ramp connections that align with the future interchange location.

                    • I attended the open house, it will indeed be 6 lanes from Calgary Trail to the Whitemud. Construction starts in October.

                      • Did anyone make it to the public meeting tonight? If so, any key items to share such as more detailed schedules, phases, etc?

                        • More importantly - was there any confirmation as to where exactly those extra lanes will be?

                            Each direction will have a lane added on the outside from Calgary Trail to the Whitemud.

                            • To the outside... that's seems odd and more complicated to me. Why wouldn't they expand the inside. It would have zero impact to traffic. Adding on the outside will affect all merge and exit lanes. Anyone know the reason for this?
                              Also, I can't find ANY material online. Anyone have a link to anything other than the announcement?

                                Looks like the spacing between the EB / WB from 111st to at least the river is pretty tight, so adding another lane + shoulder in there would put the two too close together for proper safety. They already need a safety fence in between, if that gets even closer, with lighting poles in there too, I'd imagine it's just too unsafe.
