July 18,2009 – The Alberta government and the City of Calgary are
looking to find a new route for the southwest leg of the city’s ring road, the Journal of Commerce reported last week.

the road on the reserve. The Alberta government spent $6.3 million on
environmental studies, planning and engineering work to try to secure an
Premier Ed Stelmach said the province’s target for
completion of the entire ring road by 2015 is no longer realistic.
