We are making changes to 9 Avenue S.E., between 15 Street and 20 Street S.E. to improve the safety and mobility for people who bike, walk and drive in the Inglewood community.

Construction started after the September long weekend. Currently, one vehicle travel lane is closed Monday through Sunday under the Blackfoot Trail and 9 Avenue S.E. underpass.

  • CLOSED: Eastbound lane from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. (non-peak direction)
  • CLOSED: Westbound lane from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Flaggers are in the area between 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to prioritize bus movements. After 6 p.m. buses are detoured for eastbound traffic.
  • Work occurs between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. and will take approximately three to four weeks to complete.

To read about the changes or for more information on the project, please visit Calgary.ca/9aveimprovements.​​​​​​​

The pathway on the east side of the Elbow River is closed to allow for the construction of a temporary bridge that will be used while the 9 Avenue bridge is reconstructed and is unrelated to the future closing of 8 Street S.E. View the pathway detour map here.

We will close 8 Street S.E. at the crossing with CP (south of 9 Avenue S.E.) in November. The closure will accommodate CP's reconfiguration and operations. We are implementing the closure as part of the Green Line. At this time, we are conducting a network planning study of the area, to be completed later this year, to determine whether or not a new access between Inglewood and Ramsay is required.

It's important to know that we are working with other project teams in the area to maintain pedestrian access after 8 Street is closed

7 Street S.E. and the west Elbow River pathway, from 9 Avenue S.E. to MacDonald Avenue, was closed on Monday, April 8. The closure is necessary to make room for both the temporary bridge over the Elbow River and constructing the new 9 Avenue S.E. bridge. A review is being conducted to see how 7 Street S.E. will function in the future between these avenues.

In November 2019, we will be closing 8 Street S.E. at the Canadian Pacific (CP) rail crossing, south of 9 Avenue S.E. The closure will accommodate CP’s bridge reconfiguration and operations, and is part of the Green Line construction. The CP rail crossing will be closed to people walking, cycling and driving.

We have set up an onsite display in the northwest corner of the site, along the River Walk, where we've posted an update about the overall project scope, the work that's underway and some historical images of the area before the bridge was in place. We’ll be updating the display with new information later this month, including:

  • Providing on-site project updates
  • Recounting the history of the bridge and area
  • Introducing Calgarians to the historical interpretation pieces that we're installing with the new bridge, as a tribute to the original bridge.

We have set up an onsite display at the Jack Long Park where we've posted historical content about the site itself, and other interesting pieces that the community and passersby's may be interested in, including the rich historical connection Inglewood has with Calgary.

The content on display is updated regularly, and will include:

  • On-site project updates
  • Recounting the history of the park and area
  • Seeking input about a park feature that we would like community feedback on

In addition, if you are at the Inglewood Night Market this Friday, September 13, you can find information on both the 9 Avenue Bridge Replacement Project and Jack Long Park. We would love to hear from you so please stop by.​

FAQ - Traffic, Parking and Development

The City has heard concerns about traffic speeds and congestion from the community. Current traffic and safety conditions on 9 Avenue S.E. are within an average and acceptable range, compared to similar streets in Calgary. (See the results of our traffic studies here and here) We recognize that the data doesn't necessarily reflect the experience of the people travelling the area on a regular basis, and we've heard from you that you would appreciate a greater feeling of safety as a user of 9 Avenue S.E.

There are a number of solutions that we can explore to improve the sense of safety for users of 9 Avenue S.E., such as an upgraded pedestrian realm, new or improved pedestrian crossings, and narrowing lane widths to improve driver focus and slow traffic speed. Most of these items are currently unfunded but we will continue to look for opportunities to fund and implement these solutions.

The City is working on a cohesive parking strategy for the communities of Inglewood and Ramsay. We understand that on-street parking is important to both business owners and residents for the convenience of customers, friends and families who visit the communities. Off-street parking is also important to support those who work in the area and for people who want to spend a little more time exploring the neighbourhood's parks, shops and pathways.

The closure of this road is required to accommodate CP Rail operations in the future. It will take place November 15, 2019.

The City is continuing to evaluate options to mitigate the effects of the closure. We'll be conducting a multimodal network review for the area later this year.

The City has received numerous complaints/concerns from the community about pedestrian and cyclist safety at this intersection, which led to a study on whether an intervention was needed. From this study it was determined that there should be a control put in place to improve safety.

The decision to choose a full traffic signal over a pedestrian-activated beacon was based on traffic studies, best practices and safety, and had to consider how people use that intersection. While a flashing beacon would assist pedestrians, use of it by cyclists would require that to cross legally, they would need to dismount and cross as a pedestrian. Cyclists could cross the intersection as a vehicle by heeding the stop signs on 8 Avenue and crossing when safe to do so, but this would not alleviate concerns regarding cyclist safety and comfort.

Considering the various user groups at this intersection (pedestrians, cyclists, motorists) and the need to provide a safe and convenient intersection for all, a traffic signal was determined the most appropriate control device for this location.
