Free-flow Traffic Begins on Glenmore Trail & 37 Street S.W.
Starting tomorrow, traffic signals will be removed at 37 Street and north-south traffic will travel over Glenmore Trail on a new bridge to improve traffic flow.
“The removal of these traffic signals means Calgarians can now drive from Sarcee Trail to Ogden Road, without encountering a single traffic signal,” said Gordon Stewart, The City’s Director of Transportation Infrastructure.
Glenmore Trail and 37 Street S.W. construction includes a new bridge to carry 37 Street S.W. traffic over Glenmore Trail, a roundabout on 37 Street S.W. north of Glenmore Trail, lengthening the merge lanes to and from Glenmore Trail, and upgrading the roundabout on 37 Street S.W. south of Glenmore Trail.
“The City will be moving forward with a permanent interchange at Glenmore Trail and 37 Street S.W. once the options are available from the Province for the southwest ring road,” added Stewart.
