The City of Calgary is conducting a long-term transportation study for the section of Crowchild Trail from 17 Avenue South to 24 Avenue North. The study provides recommendations for future roadway upgrades accommodating all modes of travel while maintaining connections to adjacent communities and amenities, such as the Centre City.
Public open houses are being held to provide citizens with the opportunity to learn more about the study and proposed future concepts for Crowchild Trail. The same information will be presented at both sessions.
The open houses will be held on:
Olympic Volunteer Centre, McMahon Stadium, Red and White Club
*Free parking available on the east side of the building after 5 p.m.

Your attendance at this session and feedback regarding the proposed concepts for Crowchild Trail is appreciated. Feedback received will be considered in the final recommendations provided to the City.

The long-term Crowchild Trail Corridor Study will:
- Update the 1978 Crowchild Trail Transportation Plan.
- Align Crowchild Trail with the Calgary Transportation Plan.
- Consider walking and cycling connections, Calgary Transit routing, community access, and access to the Centre City.
- Accommodate the Primary Transit Network and the Primary High Occupancy Vehicle Network with a feasibility study from Glenmore Trail S.W. to 16 Avenue N.W., connecting the Activity Centres of the University of Calgary/Foothills Medical Centre, Centre City, and Mount Royal University.
- Consider vehicle movement and capacity including goods and commuters.
- Consider appropriate street connections to Crowchild Trail as part of the Calgary Transportation Plan.
- Allow The City to more accurately evaluate proposed changes to the corridor in the future.
