Falling glass causes road closures in downtown Calgary

Oct 30 2017, 10:17 pm

Large pieces of broken glass are stopping traffic from flowing in downtown.

Yesterday’s high winds caused a sizeable piece of glass to fall to the streets around 9:45 am Sunday. The glass fell from the 23rd floor of a high rise on 6th Avenue SW, and high winds throughout the day prevented crews from clearing the glass, according to a release from the Calgary Fire Department.

The C-Train will still be running its usual route, but will not be stopping at 1st Street SW Station.

A release from the City of Calgary says that crews are working to resolve the situation.
