engage! - South Shaganappi Study

Shaganappi Trail has always been identified as a vital link in Calgary’s transportation network.

In 1970, The City completed the Shaganappi Trail Functional Planning Study. At that time, Shaganappi Trail was classified as an expressway. The study recommended a major interchange at the junction of 16 Avenue, Bowness Road, Memorial Drive, and Shaganappi Trail. It also recommended Shaganappi Trail be extended across the Bow River through Edworthy Park to connect commuters to Sarcee Trail.

In 2009, Council approved the Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP). It reclassified Shaganappi Trail to an Arterial Street from a Skeletal Road. In addition, the CTP confirmed that the Bow River crossing recommendation would be removed. This means that Shaganappi Trail will no longer function as a north to south connector across the river.

These changes require us to revisit how Shaganappi Trail was designed in the south end. The South Shaganappi Study will work with stakeholders and the public to determine the best way of addressing these challenges and ensure the future design of the study area meets the needs of the community.
