Very cool video.

If they re-do the Deerfoot/Glemore interchange and leave the the existing bridge and only allow for 2 through lanes on Glenmore each direction that will be the height of stupidity. It's unbelievable that two of the busiest roads in Calgary have been underserved with this current interchange for this long.
I've alwas assumed a new parallel span would be built over Glenmore and once complete the existing span would be demolished. Once demo was complete a new southbound bridge for Deerfoot would be built. Basically what they are doing at Stoney and MacLeod.
