Mr. Nenshi, Tear Down This Wall!

See how ISL came up with an innovative construction phasing approach to win the project and tear down the wall (aka Victoria Park / Stampede station)!

17 Ave SE Stampede Crossing Project (17SX).  It’s time to get moving! We are renewing Calgary’s aging Victoria Park/Stampede C-Train station and building critical urban connections to the Culture & Entertainment District for active users, transit, and vehicles. The project includes the overhaul of the Victoria Park/Stampede C-Train station - eliminating the physical barrier between Calgary Stampede Park and the Beltline neighbourhood while increasing platform capacity; removing the uninviting spiral stairs and overpass at 15 Avenue SE; and implementing accessible at-grade LRT crossings for users of all abilities.  Where a full station shutdown was originally contemplated for the station replacement, our project team proposed an innovative approach, with temporary platform and shoo-fly tracks to maintain reliable transit service for the duration of station reconstruction. 

For a good laugh... check out the "eulogy" Twitter video from local radio station...

The Easter season will be a bit different this year without Cadbury mini eggs to share at my desk. Also, who else is already missing the breakfast buffet?!? haha...
