In 2016, The City will be changing the lane assignments from Macleod Trail to Shawnessy Blvd/Midlake Blvd.
The traffic lanes will be modified so that there will be two southbound right-turn lanes to Shawnessy Blvd from Macleod Trail. Traffic going straight through the intersection to Shawville Blvd will now have to share a lane with one of the lanes that also provides left turns to Midlake Blvd.
The southbound right-turn movement is currently yield controlled. With this change, the two right-turn lanes will have their own dedicated traffic signal indication and will only be able to go when a green arrow is provided. Right turning traffic will not be able to turn on red.
Making this change will help reduce delay for the southbound right-turn movement to Shawnessy Blvd from Macleod Trail and enhance safety.
Please note: Motorists are cautioned to be aware of the lane assignment changes and to observe overhead guide signage directions. Changes expected to be implemented in June/July 2016.
This pilot is part of the Traffic Operational Improvements program which was developed to evaluate various intersections across Calgary which experience heavy traffic congestion.
