Glenmore Trail widening and interchange upgrade

Subscribe for email updates Email the project team


The City is widening Glenmore Trail to six lanes between 37 Street and Crowchild Trail S.W., modifying the Glenmore Trail/Crowchild Trail  interchange, and constructing a new pedestrian bridge over Crowchild Trail at 54 Avenue S.W. 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 Ring Road (SWRR).

Ring Road Connections Public Information Sessions

The Province of Alberta (KGL Constructors and Alberta Transportation) is holding two public Information Sessions to update Calgarians on construction activities about the Southwest Ring Road project.

  • February 26, 6 – 9 p.m. 
    Cardel South Rec Centre, 333 Shaughnessy Blvd. S.E.
  • February 27, 6 – 9 p.m. 
    First Church of the Nazarene, 65 Richard Way S.W.

At these events, the City of Calgary will be in attendance to provide information about the various Ring Road connection projects, including Glenmore Trail Widening and interchange upgrade.

The City will also be hosting a third Information Session:

  • March 21, 6 – 9 p.m.
    Southland Leisure Centre, 2000 Southland Drive S.W.

 

Project update

The project is currently going through the detailed design stage with contract tendering expected in April 2018.  Construction is expected  to start in spring 2018 and will continue into 2019.

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 SWRR and 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:

  • Widening Glenmore Trail from four to six lanes between 37 Street and Crowchild Trail S.W. as well as rebuilding this aging section of road.
  • Modifying the interchange for short-term improvements to help accommodate opening day traffic volumes.
  • Constructing a new pedestrian bridge over Crowchild Trail at 54 Avenue S.W. and removing the old bridge.

A City study to update the long-term plans for the Glenmore Trail/Crowchild Trail S.W. interchange will occur in the future.

Design

Here is the design of the various elements of this project. This drawing shows an overall view of the area and how it will integrate to the SWRR. More design information related to this project will be posted as it becomes available.
