Project overview

The 16 Avenue and 29 Street N.W. intersection project will improve traffic flow at one of Calgary's busiest intersections. The City will be widening 16 Avenue to six lanes where it connects with 29 Street N.W. to the south, and Uxbridge Drive to the north; a roundabout will be built at Uxbridge Drive and Ulster Road N.W. The increased road capacity along 16 Avenue and 29 Street will allow surrounding businesses, residents and commuters through the area to better access key destinations such as Foothills Hospital, Foothills Professional Centre, the Stadium Shopping Centre and other amenities.

16 Avenue North Functional Planning Study

The City is developing concept plans for widening 16 Avenue North from four to six lanes between 19 Street N.W. and 29 Street N.W. Currently, this section of 16 Avenue North has only two lanes in each direction. Few impacts are expected because The City owns most of the required right-of-way (land). The project team will work with the community and adjacent land owners to identify and address concerns.

The widening of 16 Avenue North between 19 Street N.W. and 29 Street N.W. improve road capacity and safety. It will also provide an opportunity for a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station next to University Drive N.W. and McMahon Stadium.

Area projects

There are a number of developments and projects along the route, such as the Crowchild Trail Study, Calgary Cancer Centre, 16 Avenue pedestrian bridge, University District and others. The project team will work with other City project teams and private industry to share information and coordinate when possible.
