Sarcee Trail / Richmond Road S.W. Interchange Functional Planning Study

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.

Study Background

Due to the growth of Calgary’s southwest and the opening of the SWCRR in 2021, The City conducted a Southwest and West Ring Road Downstream Traffic Impact Study in 2015. The results of this study indicated an interchange at Sarcee Trail and Richmond Road would provide significant benefits to the overall road network, as well as the surrounding communities, regardless of whether or not the West Calgary Ring Road (WCRR) was in place.

Study Objectives

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.

Public Engagement

The City is hosting engagement sessions with nearby communities and businesses to get feedback on interchange design options, accesses and connectivity. There will be two open houses in November 2016 with follow-up information sessions in spring 2017.

Join us at one of our upcoming open houses to learn more about the study and provide your feedback. (No RSVP is required.)
