Shaganappi Trail Corridor Study

The City is conducting a long-term transportation study for Shaganappi Trail north of Bowness Road. The study looks at how walking, cycling, transit and High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) requirements can be accommodated along Shaganappi Trail, and will confirm the future right-of-way for the corridor.

The study consists of two parts:
  1. A corridor study from Crowchild Trail to Bowness road that will develop a transportation plan to encourage walking, cycling, enhance transit service along Shaganappi Trail, and improve connections between communities and major destinations (e.g., Market Mall, University campus, etc.).
  2. A HOV implementation study from Stoney Trail to Bowness Road that will define what type of HOV operation (e.g., transit, carpooling) could be accommodated on Shaganappi Trail and how such operation may be implemented in the long-run. 
Come to a public open house on Tuesday Nov. 6, 2012 at the Varsity Acres Presbyterian Church (4612 Varsity Drive N.W.) from 5 to 8 p.m. to see the preliminary concepts and provide your input on the concepts presented. City representatives and consultants will be available to answer your questions about this study.

The Shaganappi Trail Corridor Study will develop a long-term vision for transportation along Shaganappi Trail that aligns with The City’s Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP) and land use plans. There is currently no funding available to implement recommendations from this study.

  1. Extend the HOV lanes from Crowchild right to the SW Ring Road at WestHills / Signal Hill Mall. Put the bridge across and join Sarcee to Shaganappi and actually finish a corridor in the city. 3 lanes each way with one being an HOV lane.
