Macleod Trail

Macleod Trail is a major road in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is a six to eight lane principal arterial road extending from downtown Calgary to the south of the city, where it merges into Highway 2. South of Anderson Road, Macleod Trail is an expressway and is slated to be upgraded to a freeway in the near future.

We would also be happy to take any warm winter coats. Any items can be dropped off to the Used Car Dept of Silverhill Acura on Macleod Trail. Thank you! Your help is very much appreciated!

Not much luck finding a place to play for evacuated folks tonight. The number Nenshi posted only picked up the phone this morning and told me it wasn't the right number.

Anyone with a lead on a local shelter that may want a jazz band tonight, please let me know. I'd be happy to try to organize something or perhaps join in on someone else's performance. Thanks.

These buildings will not be opened to the public or tenants until this has happened • This means that almost 650 residents are a little closer to returning home • Your residence must be dry and inspected. This is to ensure your safety. • Your neighbourhood is dry. If you are in a building that is still wet, within your neighbourhood, power will not be turned on in your building until it is confirmed that it is dry and inspected. This is because everything is interconnected and could cause serious issues for you and your neighbours. • Electrical wires, power poles and utility boxes need to be dry, too. If it is not dry, it could spark a fire wi ...

Flood Update - Macleod Trail into downtown will be open this am. Mayor Nenshi said don’t use it, if at all possible. Work from home, car pool, or bike, The City has established 14 Park & Bike sites. - Power has been restored to about 7,300 more Enmax customers, just over 11,000 remain without electricity. Crews are currently working in Riverdale, Bonnybrooke, Erlton, & Mission. - Enmax has restored power to most buildings in the NW portion of the downtown core. As for the East Village, that could be days away. School Calgary Catholic and Public Schools are re-opening tomorrow. Public schools will have NO ‘yellow’ bus service. The CBE is asking parents to use alternate transportation like car pools. The Catholic board says they WILL have the majority of ‘yellow’ bus routes running as scheduled tomorrow. Both boards are providing kids the one day back to school to say goodbye to friends and teachers and collect supplies. SAIT, Mount Royal, and the U of C, will open again today for the first time. ...
is it just me or does it seem kind of strange that Calgary wants to put the Stampede on this year. with all the damage from the flooding. The LRT tracks at Erlton are buckled and twisted, part of Macleod Trail is crumbled and downtown is a mess. I understand it brings in millions of dollars of revenue for the city but what about the Calgarians? Shouldn't the city take care of their own first? I heard on the radio in Edmonton that Calgary should have the stampede in Edmonton. Have the rodeo, chuckwagons, calf roping, bull riding, barrel racing...in Edmonton. All proceeds from the event could go to Calgary. Or have the rodeo in a different city, Red Deer is closer. As for the rides...don't know what to do about that. I heard that the saddledome is a loss. Ten feet under water, kitchens, electrical panels, controls for the jumbo tron under water. How on earth is that going too be ready in eight days?
It took me 2 hrs to get to Canadian tire on Macleod trail but I got a pair of rubber boots!! Off to volunteer with Jay Siu & Monica Ogoniek!!!
Just dropped Mary off at work downtown. Drove into the core from Crowchild Trail and out of the core from Macleod Trail. Mary's office is on 8th and 7th. Traffic was light and lots of police presence to help things flow. The amount of equipment beinng used to rebuild the LRT lines from City Hall to Erlton Station is... well I guess necessary but cool nevertheless.
Good morning! Unfortunately our hospital still remains without power today. Traffic lights in the area are now working and 17th Ave is open to traffic thru Macleod Trail so we are hopeful that power will be restored soon. We will keep you posted.

UPDATE- Macleod Trail open to public again in both directions. Still a lot of work going on though, so avoid roadway if you can.
Being back in YYC and seeing the devastation and destruction the flooding has caused has been very overwhelming for me and has made me realize how very lucky Danny & I were not to have had any loss of normalcy unlike thousands of others. Question that keeps running through my mind - what can we do to help?! Obvious answer volunteer but with 2 little ones at home, not so easy right now anyway - I am doing a costco run tomorrow and want to donate and pick up supplies for people in need in the badly affected areas - can anyone suggest a place to drop off, and if so what are the items people require the most? Also want to donate kids items that I have at home - suggestions?
The city of Calgary remains in a state of local emergency.
ROAD CLOSURES, DETOURS & RESTRICTIONS Take note when you leave home today.
Today's update: wow is about all we can say. Some great work being done for sure. The positive - the electrical inspectors have congratulated us on how we have proceeded and the shape that everything is. They have given us the go to have power BUT - the negative - the other surrounding buildings are so far behind us, the inspectors, are not close to approving their electrical that it will still be some time before they can turn on the power on our grid. The other part is that even tho they have pumped out water in the neighbouring Enmax building (which supplies our power), it keeps bringing in water due to the surrounding buildings still have water inside. As you can see, we removed the 4 remaining vehicles from the parkade so that the crew can continue to clean out the parkade. They will start removing drywall and such (in the hallway to the elevator) as it was heavily damaged. The elevator company has been called out to do an inspection of our newly installed elevator - fingers crossed that goes well. . ...

Many of these small businesses may lose their livelihood if they are not operational again soon. Any support and help you could show in these affected business areas would be much appreciated!

Going past south glenmore park and see a big ol green dumpster and what looks to be a pallet of building materials that were swept into the park with the flood waters. Sad face. However, so totally impressed by everyone pulling together and getting things done! MacLeod trail saw that was badly damaged is already being reopened to traffic. Love ya Calgary!
I have just returned from an excursion to Mission area of Calgary. Power has not been restored to the area and thus OUR OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED ON WED JUNE 26, 2013.

Best access (albeit slow as well) is from the West along 17th Ave. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We will keep everyone posted daily. thank-you for your patience.

Update as of 8AM Tuesday June 25: Rangeland remains closed due to the power outage. The City advises that power has been restored to 53% of the downtown and we are hoping that they will be able to restore power today. Access to the downtown remains limited and unnecessary travel to the core is NOT recommended although major arteries like Memorial and Macleod Trail are tentatively going to reopen today. C-Train and bus service is starting to be restored. Thanks Management
Macleod Trail to reopen later today; 12 more neighbourhoods to regain power
Pacesetter Directional Drilling will be BBQ'ing HUMPTYS PARKING LOT ON MACLEOD TRAIL AND 25th AVE SW. for volunteers and those impacted by the flood. 10:30AM-1PM.
I had the opportunity to see Calgary. Yeah, hit pretty hard. I had talked to a neighbour, Gloria in the Holiday Inn here. She is from High River. They are totally devastated! Her and her husband lost their basement. They had one hour to leave but they will be alright. They have good resources. She (we) feel for the young families and elderly on lower income. They will take a very long time to recover. Calgary traffic is terribly slow as people reroute to know good streets.
I was driving today and wanted to get over to MacLeod Trail. I wasn't thinking and went to use Sifton Blvd. I had to take a side street. I hadn't realized that this area was hit by flood waters. It was a very big shock to see people having to pull carpet, mattresses and most other belongings out on to their front lawns to be hauled away.. The reality of the losses to these poor folks was over whelming.
Volunteers needed tomorrow at 11am. 2404 Erlton Rad SW. Walk in access only, best to come across Macleod Trial on foot or bike. More sort, haulin, cleanin, packin and movin. Thanks so much everyone!!
IT IS WITH A VERY SAD HEART THAT THIS IS POSTED: Highwood High's Graduation is Postponed The Administation Team of Highwood High School made the difficult decision to postpone their 2013 graduation ceremonies. A date for the new ceremonies will be forthcoming from Ms. Kingston, Highwood's principal. With school ending this week, the loses suffered by students and families associated with Highwood, and the difficulty in communicating with students and families it was felt that postponing graduation gave Highwood students and families the best opportunity to celebrate their achievements. On behalf of the staff and students of FCHS/AHSFA I would like to congratulate the graduates of Highwood's Class of 2013. You're achievements speak for themsleves and your graduation ceremoney will be all the more powerful and meaningful when the stresses of the recent flood are behind you.
Haven't been at work since Thursday, still not going in tomorrow. Talk about an extra long weekend! Only one problem...if they do call us back, how the *** am I getting downtown with Macleod trail and Elbow drive closed? Stupid direct routes all crossed by the Elbow river :(
I do not have patience for this traffic!
Anyone missing a white Jeep? If so I found it.. Also the north lane on Macleod Trail and the Erlton north and south track!!
Incredibly, the city expects Macleod Trail to be reopened by Tuesday. Read more about the rebuild here:
P The tracks north of the Stampede Erlton C-Train Station look more like a rollercoaster than an LRT route into downtown. Adjacent Macleod Trail northbound lanes were also destroyed. Ted Rhodes/Calgary Herald photo
It's so surreal being downtown and it looks just like a ghost town minus all the construction vehicles. Seeing the twisted and broken C-Train tracks beside Macleod Trail just shows how powerful Mother Nature can be.

always feels privileged when we hear that we seem to be doing the right things at AXE... Here's a testimony we received this morning from another AXEmazing custtomer of ours!!! "I am a retired long haul trucker. I have been playing guitar on and off for 50 years. In that time I have shopped at quite a few music stores. I am writing this letter to inform you that your Macleod Trail store in Calgary has to be the best that I have been to. The staff is helpful to the point that I feel guilty not buying something when I am in the store looking, or phone up to ask questions. My music taste is quite eclectic. Any thing from opera, to heavy metal, to blues, and when I stop to talk about my likes and experiences, they have always shown interest. That means a lot to a lot of us old guys. Kudos to those guys, both young and old." Ken W. Irricana Alberta
