The City of Calgary is now in Phase 4 of its Transportation Corridor Study of 50th Avenue SW between Crowchild Trail and 14A Street SW. Phase 4 presents the final recommended plan and short term recommendations for the corridor.
The final recommended plan for 50 Avenue SW includes a multi-use pathway on the south side of 50 Avenue SW, a wider sidewalk along the north side of the corridor, and a number of intersection and pedestrian improvements. This plan incorporates public feedback such as maintaining parallel parking between 15 Street SW and 17 Street SW, and multi-use crossings (“elephant’s feet” pavement markings) at intersections to allow cyclists to cross the street without dismounting.

Short-term recommendations were also identified in this study, including improvements west of 22 Street SW to improve traffic flow onto Crowchild Trail, and pedestrian improvements such as marked crosswalks and pedestrian crosswalk signs.

The final recommended plan is a long-term vision for the corridor and will be implemented as funding becomes available. Currently there is no funding for the 50 Avenue SW recommendations.
The purpose of identifying improvements now is to allow for planning and prioritization of the project and to have a plan in place to secure funding.
The short-term recommendations could be implemented over the next couple of years as funding becomes available.
Thank you to thsoe who provided their input and feedback in this study.
