Ward 2 official website

Crowchild Trail is an important skeletal roadway in Calgary's Transportation network, with over 100,000 vehicles per day crossing the Bow River. It not only plays an important role in the movement of goods and services throughout Calgary, but also is a primary roadway for commuters in Ward 2. That is why I was pleased to support a plan to significantly upgrade Crowchild Trail.

The short term improvements to Crowchild Trail which were approved by City Council on April 24, 2017 focus on upgrading the Crowchild Trail bridge over the Bow River. The existing Crowchild Trail bridge requires a major lifecycle rehabilitation, therefore it makes economic sense to upgrade this bridge while it is being rehabilitated. Upgrades include building an additional lane in both directions. This will be accomplished by widening the bridge across the Bow River, widening the bridge across Memorial Drive and ramp reconfiguration. Once complete, Crowchild Trail will have 3 through lanes in each direction over the Bow River which will help reduce congestion on this major roadway.

Longer-term plans for Crowchild Trail include building an interchange at 24th Avenue NW, 16th Avenue NW, 5th Avenue NW and Kensington Road NW. This will eliminate all traffic lights on Crowchild Trail and allow for free flow traffic between Stoney Trail and Glenmore Trail. More information on the upgrades to Crowchild Trail can be found online at
