I wanted to make you aware of some work that the City of Calgary is undertaking to determine the future of Crowchild Trail, which I know many of my constituents travel daily.
Transportation Planning has begun a long-term transportation Corridor Study for Crowchild Trail. The study will update the Crowchild Trail Corridor plan to align with the 2009 Calgary Transportation Plan (which is available here). The original Functional Planning Study for the Crowchild Corridor was completed in 1978.
Updating the Crowchild Corridor plan will includes a transportation corridor study of Crowchild Trail between 17th Ave SW and 24th Ave NW and a potential High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Corridor Study between Glenmore Trail and 16th Ave NW.
A major part of this work includes gathering input from Calgarians. A survey is available on the City of Calgary website, which I would encourage you to complete. It will be online until February 3rd, 2012. You can read more about the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study and complete the survey at http://www.calgary.ca/crowchild.
