HWY 1A/22 CONSTRUCTION UPDATE:

The Town is working closely with the Province of Alberta to advance the HWY 1A/22 interchange work. To support this, there are two construction projects anticipated to begin:

May 16/17: Overnight construction to install a heavy truck crossing between HWY 1A and Ranche Road (RR43). During this time, only one lane will be open to traffic, with flaggers controlling traffic flow. 

May 18: Crews will begin construction on the east loop ramps for the HWY 1A/22 interchange. During daytime hours, traffic on HWY 22 will be limited to one lane each direction. Flaggers will be in place to assist with traffic flow. This work is anticipated to be complete by late July.

We acknowledge that the construction projects are impacting many residents, as you travel throughout Cochrane. Thanks for your patience as we work to deliver these projects – we appreciate your support. 

Information updates will be shared regularly to help you plan your routes.
