Interact with City staff online to learn about McKnight Boulevard study

The City is conducting a study for McKnight Boulevard from Deerfoot Trail to Stoney Trail (see map of study area) to help improve traffic flow, reduce travel times, and reduce the frequency and severity of collisions.

Since November 2013, the project team has worked collaboratively with area stakeholders and citizens to identify opportunities for traffic optimization, and to determine the feasibility of adding High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes in the study area.

Recommendations from the study focus on improvements to 12 Street N.E. and the 2015 widening of McKnight Boulevard. See details of how we arrived at the recommendations for the 19 Street and Barlow Trail intersections, and for High Occupancy Vehicle lanes online.

There are three ways that you can participate:

  1. Review the slideshow available on
  2. Participate in one of two Live Chat sessions on Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  3. Email questions or comments to the project team at until Feb. 9, 2015.
This study was implemented under the Transportation Corridor Study Policy, providing a more consistent, open, and collaborative approach to stakeholder and citizen engagement for corridor studies.
