Hopefully it's just a case of the rest not being posted yet. These are great photos! The Anderson Road crane shots are amazing.

Agreed on all accounts! I live right by the Anderson interchange,and its been really cool to see all the progress. They have made a ton of progress since that shot, and traffic will be diverted under it in two weeks:

I never go to that area so had no idea of the scale of the interchange. It's definitely a lot bigger than I was expecting.

It's also good to see that they're starting to use parts of the new infrastructure for detours. That's usually a good sign the finish line is closer than the starting line. Can't wait to drive this road!

What is the actual deadline to be done - I have Oct. 2021 in my head - or is that just for the portion through Tsuu T'ina ?

IIRC they had seven years to finish from the day they signed the official deal. At the rate they're going they should easily be done on time.

Pretty significant traffic realignment this weekend at Glenmore/Sarcee/ Hwy 8.

That link takes me to the home page of the project site. Here's a photo of what they plan on doing. Does anyone understand where the new lanes, etc. will be? To me it looks some of the new bridges are being used. Are they done?

Yes, a number of bridges are done - I believe they’ll also be cutting over to the new bridge at Glenmore/37 Street this weekend (or very soon after). They’ve had lines painted and signals up for a while, and they’ve cleared the snow off the roads as well.

Westbound Glenmore going into Northbound Sarcee looks like it will be using the Southbound to Westbound bridge (creating another awkward crossover intersection), so there's a long way to go still.
