Updates on other City of Calgary connections

 
Bow Trail widening and intersection improvements
 
The City is planning to widen Bow Trail to four lanes between 85 Street S.W. and Old Banff Coach Road, as well as improving the intersection at Bow Trail and 85 Street S.W. These upgrades will provide for a better road network by accommodating existing and future traffic volumes in the area.

Construction on the initial intersection improvements is expected to begin in summer 2017 and be completed in late 2017. These initial intersection improvements will include extending the southbound left turning lane on 85 Street by removing a portion of the median and adding an additional left turning lane on westbound Bow Trail to 85 Street. Construction on the widening of Bow Trail and the remaining intersection improvements, which also include plans to widen 85 Street to two through lanes north of Bow Trail, is currently anticipated to begin in 2018.
 
The City will provide an update to the community on this project as it progresses. For more information on this project, visit the project webpage.
 
Glenmore Trail widening and interchange upgrade
 
The City is widening Glenmore Trail to six lanes between 37 Street and Crowchild Trail S.W. and modifying the Glenmore Trail/Crowchild Trail S.W. interchange. These upgrades will provide for a better road network by accommodating changes to traffic volume and patterns that are expected after the opening of the SWCRR.
 
The design work for the Glenmore Trail widening and interchange upgrades are scheduled to begin in late 2017, with construction planned to start in 2018 and continue into 2019.
