Crowchild Trail Upgrades

Project Update: September 22, 2020

We’re pleased to announce that all major upgrades involved in this short-term improvements phase of this project are now complete. While you will notice a few skeleton crews putting some finishing touches on this project through to the end of this construction season, the new lanes are open, traffic flow has been improved over the Bow River and we hope you’ve had the chance to take advantage of the increased connectivity to our pathway network.

We’d like to personally thank you for your support, patience and understanding throughout this project. We could have never done it without you. We’ve created a video that summarizes the innovation behind this project and our sincerest thanks to our fellow Calgarians.
