Ward 11 News: Sarcee Trail - Richmond Road SW Interchange Functional Planning Study

  • Share

Ward 11 official website
 
The City of Calgary is undertaking a study for the Sarcee Trail/Richmond Road SW 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.

Purpose

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.

Engagament Opportunities

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.
 
Open House #1 - Monday, November 21
Time: 5 to 8 pm
Location: Glamorgan Community Centre, Main Hall – 4207 41 Ave. SW
 
Open House #2 - Saturday, November 26
Time: 11 am to 2 pm
Location: Glamorgan School, Main Gym – 50 Grafton Dr. SW
