Public input wanted for Crowchild plan

If you travel by foot, bicycle, transit, or automobile near Crowchild Trail we want to hear from you.

The City of Calgary’s Transportation Department has begun a long-term transportation study for Crowchild Trail that includes a review of the corridor from 24 Avenue North to 17 Avenue South, and a High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) corridor study from 16 Avenue North to Glenmore Trail South.

“An average of 106,000 Calgarians use this corridor to get where they are going every week day,” says Julie Radke, Senior Transportation Engineer with The City of Calgary. “We want to hear from all users regardless of what mode they use to travel through the area. We will incorporate their feedback into our planning study.”

The study will update the 1978 plan for Crowchild Trail and align it with the 2009 Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP) and new land use planning initiatives in advance of future development in the area. The study will also capture opportunities for improvements along the corridor for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and motorists. As a part of this process, The City is looking for feedback from Calgarians who travel on the corridor and has posted an online survey to collect input from them.

The survey will be open from Monday, January 23, until Friday, February 4. For more information or to complete the survey, visit .
