The City is widening Glenmore Trail to six lanes between 37 Street and Crowchild Trail S.W. and modifying the Glenmore Trail/Crowchild Trail S.W. interchange. These upgrades will provide for a better road network by accommodating changes to traffic volume and patterns that are expected after the opening of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR).
The design work for the Glenmore Trail widening and interchange upgrades are scheduled to begin in late 2017, with construction planned to start in 2018 and continue into 2019. We will coordinate with utility groups and the Government of Alberta throughout the entire design process and will continue updating the community and area as the project progresses.
About the project
The widening of Glenmore Trail to six lanes between 37 Street and Crowchild Trail S.W. will provide better access to and from the SWCRR and provide improvements to the overall transportation network. The upgrade to the Glenmore Trail/Crowchild Trail S.W. interchange will modify the current interchange to manage traffic that’s moving east to north and south to west. The City is responsible for the design and construction of this project because it is located within city limits. This project includes the following features:
- Increasing Glenmore Trail from four to six lanes between 37 Street and Crowchild Trail S.W. as well as rebuilding this aging section of road.
- Modify the interchange for short-term improvements to help accommodate opening day traffic volumes.
- A noise study to determine if noise walls are required, as guided by The City’s Surface Noise Policy.
A City study to update the long-term plans for the Glenmore Trail/Crowchild Trail S.W. interchange will occur in the future.
The following drawing shows an overall view of the area and how it will integrate to the SWCRR. We will update this section with designs as they become available and progress.
