Where we are in the study
We’re in Phase 2: Confirm Project Goals of a new six-phase study for Crowchild Trail from 24 Avenue N.W. to 17 Avenue S.W.
- Nearly 300 people have provided input in 23 engagement events to help develop study goals since the beginning of June. In addition, hundreds of ideas have been submitted online and at community idea boards in and around the study area.
- The project team is reviewing the input gathered to draft project goals. Calgarians will be asked to provide feedback on the draft goals in August.
- Sign-up for email updates to be notified when the draft goals are available online for feedback.
- The project goals confirmed in Phase 2 of the study will help guide the development and evaluation of design concepts as the study progresses.
In July 2014, City Council directed Transportation Planning to restart the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study. The new Crowchild Trail Study is now in progress.
Where is the study area? Crowchild Trail from 24 Ave N.W. to 17 Ave S.W.
What is the new Crowchild Trail Study about? The new study will identify short-, medium-, and long-term plans that will accommodate the continued growth of Calgary. These include upgrades needed to move high volumes of vehicle traffic, improve travel along and across the Crowchild corridor, and maintain or enhance bordering communities.
Why is the study needed? Crowchild Trail is an important part of Calgary’s transportation network. The 1978 approved plan needs to be updated to align with The City’s long-range Calgary Transportation Plan and Municipal Development Plan. A new approved plan will help the Transportation department acquire funding from City Council for improvements along Crowchild Trail.
How can I get involved in the study? The new six-phase study process includes multiple engagement opportunities that gather public input to help inform project decisions in each phase of the study. Sign up for the project newsletter and stay informed about upcoming engagement opportunities on the Get Involved page. The six-phase process for the Crowchild Trail Study is consistent with the Transportation Corridor Study Policy.
Who are you getting input from? We're gathering input from those who live immediately next to Crowchild Trail, operate businesses and large institutions (e.g. U of C, Alberta Health Services), live in communities that border the study area, and those who travel along or across Crowchild Trail. We’re also consulting with internal city business units.
When will the study be complete? We expect to complete the study by the end of 2016 and to bring the study recommendations to Council in 2017.
