The City of Calgary is undertaking a study for the Sarcee Trail/Richmond Road S.W. interchange. Although there is currently no funding allocated to construct an interchange at this location, The City hopes to have these plans approved and have the interchange included as a candidate project for funding in 2018. This timing allows us to evaluate the option to design and construct the interchange in coordination with the Southwest Calgary Ring Road (SWCRR) project, which is scheduled to open by 2021.
The objective of this study is to determine an interchange configuration that fits with the SWCRR and the local road network, provides accesses to local businesses and connects appropriately with communities.
The first phase of the stakeholder engagement program for the Sarcee Trail / Richmond Road functional planning study ran from February through December of 2016. During this time, The City met with Community Associations, commercial property owners and managers, and other key stakeholders. The City hosted two engagement sessions on November 21 and 26, 2016, with nearby communities and businesses to get feedback on interchange design options, accesses and connectivity, and also provided learning and feedback opportunities online. For more details on the information shared at the open houses, please view the display boards.
The What We Heard Report for this phase of the stakeholder engagement program provides further details regarding what was discussed and what we heard at the engagement sessions, as well as a summary of key themes from those sessions.
The study is now in the technical planning and evaluation stage, which will also incorporate the feedback received from the public engagement program. Information sessions will be held in spring 2017 to share these results. For more information on the project timeline and the three proposed interchange designs, please visit our Engage page.
