On Crowchild Trail S.W., between North Glenmore Park and 66 Avenue, The City is planning to install a two-way, physically separated bike lane, called a cycle track, for the 2012 construction season. As part of the Calgary Cycling Strategy, the cycle track will expand and connect to the cycling network in the Lakeview and North Glenmore Park areas:
- Trans Canada Trail pathway system that goes through North Glenmore Park and continues north along the Elbow River and south around the Glenmore Reservoir
- Bike lanes on 66 Avenue S.W.
- Calgary’s citywide pathways and bikeways network.
Public engagement has been completed for this project. Please call 3-1-1 if you have questions regarding this project.
Drawings and Design
- Crowchild Trail S.W. Route map – Connections between the new cycle track and the existing cycling network.
- Crowchild Trail - Final Design – Crowchild Trail S.W. traffic and cycle track designs.
The cycle track will improve mobility in the area as the design will provide pedestrians, cyclists and motorists with their own, separate spaces for traveling:
- Pedestrians will use the existing pathway
- Cyclists will use the cycle track
- Motorists will use new northbound and southbound traffic lanes
Due to the number of traffic lanes remaining and the low traffic levels in the area, it is expected there will be minimal effect on motor vehicles.
