About the study:
This system was built in the late 1960s and is remnants of a freeway plan that was never fully completed. It was originally classified as an expressway and designed as a connector route across the river to Sarcee – Bow Trail. What was planned then is no longer appropriate today.
In 2009, Council approved the Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP). It reclassified Shaganappi Trail to an arterial street. In addition, the CTP confirmed that the Bow River crossing recommendation would be removed. This means that Shaganappi Trail will no longer function as a north to south connector across the river.
In addition, in order to maintain the system and keep it operational, it will need rehabilitation within the next 20 years.These changes require us to revisit how Shaganappi Trail was designed in the south end.
Over the next two years, we will be working with citizens to determine the best way of addressing these challenges and ensure the design of the study area meets the future needs of the community and the future transportation needs as the city grows.
