The new airport tunnel will be open to motorists May 25th.

Top city officials say the $295-million roadway is nearing the finish line after three years of hard work.

The 620-metre tunnel, extending from Deerfoot Trail to 36th Street N.E., is equipped with six lanes of traffic.

A special grand opening May 24th, will allow Calgarians to walk through the new roadway; the most expensive transportation project in city history.

There’s still one hurdle left to clear: city council has to negotiate with authorities at YYC to link the new tunnel to Metis Trail.
