The increase in commuter traffic at the Crowchild Trail and 24 Avenue N.W. intersection, has caused severe congestion leading The City to consider alternative traffic measures to reduce the amount of congestion in this area. After careful evaluation, The City is proposing to restrict the left hand, northbound turn from Crowchild Trail to 24 Avenue N.W. during weekday morning peak period (6 a.m. to 9 a.m.). This will begin on August 19, 2013. Information specific to this pilot can be found online at http://Calgary.ca/24ave. In addition to the signal changes at this intersection, The City will also add a dual turning lane from eastbound 24 Avenue N.W. to northbound Crowchild Trail N.W. Construction is expected to begin and be completed within the summer of 2013. During construction various lane restrictions may occur. This will be a permanent change and is not part of the signal pilot. Please visit http://Calgary.ca/trafficinfo for up to date traffic information.
