North of Glenmore Trail S.W. - BRT overview

 
 

See what we're working on


There will be a number of intersection changes and improvements as we're building the Southwest BRT.

We're building a transit only ramp at the southeast corner of the Crowchild Trail and Glenmore Trail S.W. interchange, and widening the shoulder lane of eastbound Glenmore Trail for buses to bypass traffic during congestion. We'll also be adding a new transit ramp connection to Hospital Road at 14 Street and Glenmore Trail S.W.

 

Project plans for the area


Transit only ramp - North of Glenmore Trail

Construction of the transit only ramp at the southeast corner of the Crowchild Trail and Glenmore Trail S.W. interchange will be starting again in May 2018. The new road will only be used by BRT buses during times of congestion on Crowchild Trail to the Glenmore Trail flyover. A segment of the noise wall will be removed and replaced to accommodate the transit only lane, and we will be planting landscaping in the area to provide separation from nearby houses.

We will also be widening the shoulder lane of eastbound Glenmore Trail. The shoulder lanes will be used by buses, when safe to do so, during rush hour to bypass congestion on Glenmore Trail similar to the current operation on Crowchild Trail. The shoulder lane will lead to a bus only connection from the exit ramp of Glenmore Trail onto 14th Street S.W. directly to the Rockyview Hospital.
