Crowchild Trail Study: short-term recommended plan
On July 20, 2016 we presented a study update to Council’s Standing Policy Committee on Transportation and Transit. We recommended that we advance planning and design of several short-term changes and upgrades to Crowchild Trail that can be implemented over the next five years. The estimated cost to implement the short-term recommendations is $90 million.

In November 2016, we reported back to Council with a proposed budget to implement the short-term recommendations including widening the Bow River Bridge to accommodate an additional lane in each direction together with the bridge rehabilitation work and several short-term optimization ideas. We anticipate receiving a decision on funding from Council in early 2017.
If approved by Council at that time, we will be able to move forward with the bridge widening and optimization projects and be ready for construction in Spring 2017. Read the report.
