Kensington Road and Crowchild Trail intersection changes

​To improve travel and reduce congestion along Crowchild Trail, The City is implementing some of the short-term recommendations identified in the Crowchild Trail Study.

Left turn restriction to Kensington Road

After careful evaluation, The City implemented a restriction of the left-hand, northbound turn from Crowchild Trail to Kensington Road N.W. during the morning rush hours (6 a.m. to 9 a.m.) on weekdays after seeing positive results from a trial that ended in early 2017.

Restricting the left-hand turn allowed for a longer green signal time for the heaviest amount of traffic headed southbound on Crowchild Trail N.W., travel time measurements through the intersection and observations show that this has improved traffic flow.

Hours in effect

During morning rush hours (6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Monday to Friday).

Intersection changes you will see

To prevent traffic from turning left from northbound Crowchild Trail to Kensington Road N.W., the turn arrow will not light up and a sign has been installed that changes during the turn restriction to let motorists know that they will not be able to turn left.
