Northeast Stoney Crossing Study: 80 Avenue N.E. & 64 Avenue N.E.

About the study

The City of Calgary is conducting a study for the communities located around Stoney Trail N.E. between Airport Trail N.E and McKnight Blvd N.E.

A crossing over Stoney Trail East at 80 Avenue N.E. is approved for emergency, transit, pedestrian and cyclist access only. A crossing over Stoney Trail N.E. at 64 Avenue N.E. was planned in the 2009 Calgary Transportation Plan for all road users.

The study will evaluate the ultimate function and design of the 80 Avenue N.E. crossing, including whether access will include people who drive or remain for emergency, transit, pedestrian and cyclists only. The study will look at the design and construction timing of the crossing planned at 64 Avenue N.E.

The first phase of engagement for this project is now closed. A report of what we heard is available here

Next Steps

We are reviewing feedback that we received from the engagement process, community associations, stakeholder groups and voluntary letters of support for an all-access crossing over 80 Avenue N.E. In the absence of technical details, at this time the letters will not influence the decision for the crossing one way or another. The City will be using the feedback we received, along with technical analysis, to review the transportation network needs in the study area and develop several feasible crossing scenarios.

We will conduct Phase 2 of public engagement once there is a better understanding of the potential concepts, benefits, and trade-offs. Phase 2 engagement is expected to take place in the summer of this year and citizens will be given the opportunity to provide their feedback on the concepts. In the meantime, citizens are encouraged to contact the project team to provide feedback by sending an e-mail to nestoneycrossingstudy@calgary.ca​. Letters of support or opposition can also be presented to Council at the time of approval of the final study recommendations.

80 Avenue N.E.

A crossing over Stoney Trail East at 80 Avenue N.E. was approved by Council to accommodate access for emergency services, transit, pedestrian and cyclist connectivity to the area. The crossing supports the development of the East Stoney Area Structure Plan (ASP) lands and was approved in July 2018 as part of the New Community Growth Strategy.

64 Avenue N.E.

A four-lane, arterial crossing over Stoney Trail N.E. at 64 Avenue N.E. is indicated in the 2009 Calgary Transportation Plan. There is currently no funding or construction timeline in place to build this crossing.

An arterial road provides a reasonably direct connection between multiple communities and major destinations and carry between 10,000 and 30,000 vehicles per day (e.g. Bow Trail).

Why are we conducting the study?

In 2019, Council directed Administration to review the approved plan to determine if the 80 Avenue N.E. crossing could also be used by people who drive. This connection would make it easier for people to travel between the future community to the east, and the existing residential and business communities to the west side of Stoney Trail N.E.

The final recommended plan will identify the best alignment for the two Stoney Trail crossings, determine bridge placement and feasibility, identify any Right-of-Way requirements, property impacts, the public and emergency vehicle access plan and the construction timing plan for the area.

FAQs

When will Airport Trail N.E. be opened?

Airport Trail - Phase 1 was completed in May 2014. Airport Trail - Phase 2 involves three stages and will be opened to traffic in 2022. More information about the project can be found on calgary.ca/airporttrail.

When will these two crossings be built?

80 Avenue N.E is scheduled to be built by 2022. There is currently no funding or construction timelines for 64 Avenue N.E.
