Crowchild Trail Study

Where we are in the study

Phase 2: Confirm Project Goals of a new six-phase study for Crowchild Trail from 24 Ave. N.W. to 17 Ave. S.W. is nearly complete. Phase 3: Concept Identification will start late October.


Get ready for a new look!

We will be launching Phase 3: Concept Identification with a new Crowchild Trail Study website mid- to late- October. The new site will look different—it will be in The City’s corporate colours of red and grey. The new site will have a top navigation bar with expandable menus. This will help you find information more easily as the study progresses. You will still find the website at

Study overview

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.

What's new

Get Involved in November to share ideas on possible changes to Crowchild Trail.

What’s going on at 24 Ave. N.W.?

Construction at the Crowchild Trail and 24 Avenue N.W. intersection is not part of the Crowchild Trail Study. Current work at this intersection was identified in 2013 as part of the ongoing Traffic Congestion Reduction program. Learn more.
