The City is investing in one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods to keep it safe, beautiful and vibrant.
From replacing 100-year old bridges to building a new playground, we’re committed to:
- Improving connections in to and out of Inglewood and Ramsay, whether you travel by foot, bus, bike or car.
- Ensuring safe, reliable exits to protect the communities in the event of an emergency.
- Building on the character of the communities to create great spaces to live, work, play, and shop.
What we’re working on:
Together, these projects will support your communities in the near future, and for years to come.
Here’s what we’ve heard from you:
- You want to feel safe moving through your community by foot, bike, bus or car
- You celebrate your communities’ character, charm and natural beauty, and want to see it maintained
- You want reliable exits in case of emergency
FAQ - Traffic and Parking
The City has heard concerns about traffic speeds and congestion from the community. We are evaluating area-wide transportation network to identify opportunities to manage the system for all users, whether you walk, bike, bus or drive. There are a number of options that may come forward for discussion, including reprioritizing traffic signal timings, lane narrowing (a speed mitigation tool), on-street parking, and traffic calming solutions.
Our current recommendation is to maintain the four-lane roadway along the 9 Avenue SE corridor. Four lanes on both the roadway and the 9 Avenue SE Bridge means we can maintain:
- Safe, efficient access for emergency vehicles
- On-street parking in off-peak hours
- Bus only lanes during peak hours
- Flexibility for future roadway changes (ie. it’s better to re-paint lines than to rebuild an entire roadway!)
The four lanes today, however, may not be the same four lanes in the future. There may be opportunities to narrow lane widths and slow traffic speeds, and we will explore these options through the Main Streets – Streetscapes project.
The City is working on a cohesive parking strategy for the communities of Inglewood and Ramsay. We understand that on-street parking is important to both business owners and residents for the convenience of customers, friends and families who visit the communities. Off-street parking is also important to support those who work in the area and for people who want to spend a little more time exploring the neighbourhood’s parks, shops and pathways.
