Citizens' input wanted for Macleod Trail corridor study

Citizens are getting a chance to help shape the future of Macleod Trail.

The City of Calgary’s Transportation department is conducting a long-term transportation corridor study for Macleod Trail from 25 Avenue South to Anderson Road.  The study will consider and identify opportunities to improve community access, walking, cycling, transit, roadway operations and safety along this section of Macleod Trail.

Until Friday, May 4, communities, businesses and travellers along this section of Macleod Trail are encouraged to complete an online survey available at www.calgary.ca/macleod.  

“Macleod Trail is an important roadway for those who live, work, and travel through the area,” says Mathew MacDonald, Transportation Engineer with The City.

“We want to hear from anyone who uses this corridor during the week.  Their feedback will help identify top priority issues and help shape future transportation plans for Macleod Trail.”

The Macleod Trail Corridor Study is considered a long-term planning study.  It will update the 1968 Macleod Trail Functional Planning Report and align it with the 2009 Calgary Transportation Plan and land use planning initiatives in the area. 

Visit www.calgary.ca/macleod for more information or to complete the survey.
