Today, the Airport Trail Tunnel is passing a significant milestone with the first concrete pour of this important project. Here's an update on this piece of critical Calgary infrastructure that is on time and on budget:
Major progress has been made at the Airport Trail Tunnel site. The excavation of approximately 390,000 cubic metres of rock for the tunnel is now complete and crews started the first concrete pour of the tunnel walls and roof at 6 a.m. Friday, February 24. This 12-hour process is the first of 50 to come over the next few months, with the last one scheduled for early fall 2012.
