Early April Road Closure: Tuscany Way NW and Tuscany Valley Park NW

COMMUNITY NOTICE Please be advised that for approximately four (4) days beginning in early April 2017 there will be lane restrictions and traffic delays at the intersection of Tuscany Way NW and Tuscany Valley Park NW.

It may be some time before we know what will be built on the site, which is to the west of the homes on Tuscany Summit Heath and to the north of some of the homes on Tuscany Summit Terrace.

Twelve Mile Coulee Road Widening – Spring 2017 1

On November 24th there was a meeting at the Bearspaw Lions Hall to discuss the upcoming widening of the 12 Mile Coulee road. Work is currently scheduled to begin in the spring of 2017 with the intent to finish before winter 2017. The final product will be an undivided four-lane road with retaining walls in appropriate places, sidewalks, a gravel walking path, and street lighting as appropriate. We are excited about this development and believe that it will make this road safer while improving access to Tuscany. You can see the draft designs and other details here, additional information is provided on the website of Eric Lowther, Councillor for Bearspaw and Rockyview here.
