Crowchild Trail Upgrade – July to August

We’d like to provide you with a few updates relating to the Crowchild Trail Upgrades Project and give you an overview of the construction activity that will occur this summer:


1) Finishing Touches: Crowchild Trail & 5 Avenue N.W. Intersection

Begins July (approx. one month)

Now that summer is here, we can take this intersection from its current interim state to being fully completed. For the next month we will be back in this area finishing up the curb work, installing accessibility ramps and widening out the sidewalks. Similar to last year, there will be nightwork involved and we will be staging the noisiest work earlier on in the evenings whenever possible.


2) Add-On Rehabilitation Work

Begins Mid-July (will be ongoing)

In an effort to increase efficiencies and avoid multiple disruptions to citizens, the following structures will be rehabilitated while we’re already in the area:

  • Southbound Crowchild Trail bridge (over Bow Trail)
    • This work will involve a continuous single lane closure along southbound Crowchild Trail (over Bow Trail); access to the Bow Trail/City Centre exit ramp will be maintained.
  • Westbound Bow Trail to southbound Crowchild Trail ramp
    • Associated lane and ramp closures will be scheduled during off-peak hours.

3) New Signalized Intersection: 10 Avenue S.W. & Bow Trail

Begins July – End of August

The road and tie-in work has begun, and by the end of this summer we’ll have a new signalized intersection installed to help improve traffic flow in this area.


4) New Signalized Crossing: Parkdale Boulevard & Kensington Road N.W.

Begins July – End of August

By the end of this summer, we will have a brand new signalized crossing added along Parkdale Boulevard so pedestrians and cyclists have a dedicated, more direct connection to the Bow River Pathway.


5) Relocation Of Westbound Bow Trail To Northbound Crowchild Trail Ramp

Begins August (approx. one month)

The new westbound 10 Avenue S.W. ramp has been built and now we can relocate the westbound Bow Trail ramp to the right-hand side of Crowchild Trail as well.

Once complete, the 10 Avenue S.W. merge condition onto Crowchild Trail will be eliminated and traffic from both the westbound 10 Ave S.W. and Bow Trail ramps will join together and enter northbound Crowchild Trail as a dedicated, added right-hand lane.


6) Installation Of Permanent Signals: Crowchild Trail & Kensington Road N.W.

Begins this summer (approx. two months)

Last year the additional northbound lane was added through this intersection, now we’re coming back to install the permanent signals including the remaining roadworks and landscaping.


7) Construction Of Noise Walls

Begins this summer

Construction on the following noise walls will begin this summer, with landscaping to follow.

Current Update for June and July

Hi Brentwood and Charleswood Residents,

The City of Calgary is looking for your feedback on several topics:

  1. Residential Parking Permit Review – Deadline June 26, 2019:   

Recently, the Brentwood Community Association has received some emails from residents with concerns about parking, most often in the areas around the LRT station.  Some residents have contacted us to ask how they can apply for a restricted parking area on their streets.

This is your chance to let the City know what is or is not working in terms of parking on the streets where you live.  Everyone is encouraged to fill out this survey, even if you do not live on a street with restrictions (permit only, 2-hour, etc.).  You likely still face parking challenges in other areas where you are looking for a parking space or visiting a home with restrictions.  How do parking fees or parking rates affect your driving habits?

The survey is quite detailed, so you may wish to read the background information first.  This site has a Frequently Asked Questions tab that covers some of the basics.

https://engage.calgary.ca/RPP

The survey is only open until June 26, 2019.

  1. Smoking and Vaping – Deadline July 7, 2019

Should the Smoking and Vaping Bylaw be further strengthened?

Council has asked Administration to engage Calgarians on whether the Smoking and Vaping Bylaw should be stronger, with consideration to prohibiting:

  • Waterpipe (hookah/shisha) smoking in workplaces, public premises and specified outdoor places
  • Smoking and vaping in outdoor public parks and at outdoor public events
  • Smoking and vaping in hotel and motel roomsWhat do you think?  This survey is open until July 7, 2019.

  1. Council News in Brief

Would you like to learn more about issues with which Council and various Committees (such as Finance, Transportation, Urban Development) have been dealing?

You can sign up to receive Council News in Brief.  You’ll receive an email with a few short paragraphs summarizing the recent decisions or debates at Council, as well as links for further information.  It’s a great way to keep track of what’s been happening, without getting bogged down into too much detail.  You won’t receive Spam mails, just updates after Council or Committee meetings.
There is a sign-up link on this page.

Crowchild Trail Upgrade Notice for 10th Ave SW

3) The westbound Bow Trail to northbound Crowchild Trail ramp will continue to come up into its own lane on the far left-hand side of Crowchild Trail as it does now.

Crowchild Trail Upgrades

First Major 2019 Traffic Shift

Beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, May 24 and running straight through until 5 a.m. on Monday, May 27, there will be a significant increase in construction activity along the Crowchild Trail construction sites. In addition to regular roadworks, our crews will be temporarily (until the end of July) relocating the exit point from northbound Crowchild Trail to the eastbound and westbound Memorial Drive off-ramps.


This means…


Over the weekend:

  • More workers than usual will be on-site.
  • There will be single lane traffic in both directions along Crowchild Trail (over the river) throughout the weekend.
  • There will be ongoing rotating lane and ramp closures, relocated barriers, and re-painting of lane lines.

Effective Monday morning (5 a.m.):

  • The current exit to both the eastbound and westbound Memorial Drive off-ramps will be shifted 50 metres south (from now until the end of July).
  • BOTH the northbound and southbound lanes along Crowchild Trail will be realigned.

Please Note:

  • We are coordinating our lane closures with the Calgary Marathon happening on Sunday.
