The City of Calgary is working to make our city more liveable by improving access and safety for all road users. The City monitors and adjusts existing bikeways based on feedback from 3-1-1 calls, citizen requests to Councillors and conversations with roadway users. Currently, 11 Street S.E., between 46 Avenue S.E. and Heritage Drive S.E., is a three to four lane arterial road with bike lanes north of 64 Avenue S.E. and shared-use lanes throughout the rest of the corridor, with limited cyclist connectivity. It is served by four bus routes and has limited pedestrian facilities. The corridor has been identified for review to determine how The City can improve conditions. The review area is approximately three kilometres long.
Goals for the 11 Street S.E. Corridor Improvement Project are to:
- Improve road safety and mobility for all users
- Review operations and traffic flow
- Identify opportunities to enhance existing facilities for people who bicycle and walk
- Improve connections for people who bicycle and walk

Public engagement & communications
The City met with stakeholders on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at Hotel Blackfoot to discuss the existing conditions on 11 Street S.E. and identify improvement areas. Approximately 14 people attended and heard a presentation about why the 11 Street S.E. corridor needs to be reviewed and improved, the existing conditions for all road users and some of the challenges and opportunities around the improvements. The project team and attendees discussed the possibilities for the corridor and identified concerns and potential solutions for improvements. View the meeting summary for details about what we heard.
Using the input from the stakeholder meeting, the project team identified improvements for:
- Existing pedestrian and bicycle facilities
- Traffic operations and safety for all road users
- Pedestrian and bicycle connections to 11 Street S.E. (short- and long-term)
Public open house and online feedback
More than 40 people attended the open house on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at Hotel Blackfoot. The project team is reviewing and summarizing the input. A summary report will be posted online in the fall.
Public input gathered at the open house and online will be used to select and refine the best options to improve the corridor. The City will report back to stakeholders when designs are finalized.
