Evaluate concepts for the south end of Shaganappi Trail on November 24


Shaganappi Trail has long served as a vital link in Calgary’s transportation network.

It’s time to think of the future and how it can better serve citizens. That’s why The City of Calgary is conducting a transportation corridor study that will identify short- and long-term recommendations for the south end of Shaganappi Trail.

Citizens shared their concerns and ideas on how to improve the study area starting last year. The study is currently in Phase 2: Concept Development and Analysis. Join us at the open house on Thursday, November 24 at the Foothills Academy (745 37 St. N.W.) to help evaluate preliminary concepts for the study area.

“The infrastructure was built in the 1960s and is the remnant of a freeway plan that was never built,” says Project Manager Lei Ma. “The study will help us understand how to reconfigure the roads to better meet the needs of the community and Calgary’s transportation network for the next 30 years.”

There will also be an opportunity to provide input online around the same time. The input received throughout the engagement, along with technical review, will help us identify a set of recommendations to present to Calgarians in spring 2017.
