G8's Effect On YYC

Wed Jun 12, 2002 9:55 am

Looks like it might be a little harder than we anticipated.

Calgary International Airport roadway restrictions

G8 Summit Security request motorists note the following measures that will be in effect from 0500 (5 am) Tuesday, June 25 to approximately 0200 (2am) Friday, June 28:

Expect minor motor vehicle delays in the vicinity of the airport. Please add an extra 30 minutes to your regular travel time.

Airport Trail will be closed at both its Deerfoot Trail and Barlow Trail access points. Motorists approaching the airport from the south are advised to use McKnight Blvd. and Barlow Trail. Approaching from the north, use Country Hills Blvd./112th Avenue N.E. and Barlow Trail. Expect delays at the intersections of Barlow and McKnight, and at Barlow and Country Hills Blvd.

Northbound and southbound McCall Way will be closed to all vehicles at the intersections of McCall Landing (northbound) and 78th Avenue N.E. (southbound). The only exceptions are Emergency Services personnel and Calgary Transit Route 57.

While Calgary Transit service to the airport via Route 57 (Airport, Marlborough) will continue, passengers should expect brief delays as the bus stops at security checkpoints.

Access on Aero Road will be restricted to Emergency Services personnel, employees of Nav Canada and the Calgary Airport Authority, and individuals conducting business at either of these facilities.

The Park & Jet facility, near the intersection of Airport Trail and Barlow Trail, will remain accessible to motorists via Barlow Trail.

At the airport itself, there will be a strictly enforced ban on unattended vehicles curbside arrival/departure levels at the air terminal building. Police officers, members of the Corps of Commissionaires, and towing vehicles will be on hand to enforce this ban.

Here is a map of the road closures, seems certain areas will be available for photo ops or viewing

From the Calgary Airport Website:
"Media or interested public seeking to take pictures or view aircraft may do so from any public area in or around the airfield that is open to the public. However, general public are advised that there will be little to see from the airport main terminal public area vantage points. Also, there will be vehicle parking, stopping and access controls in place at times around the airport perimeter for security reasons"

I haven't seen anything new in the last couple days come into the airport. But be sure that I will post it if something does arrive. Although yesterday there was some blue 707 parked at the cargo apron, not sure who it was though.
