26 Avenue Southwest Engagement

26 Ave SW Bridge over Crowchild Trail

Check out the engagement page for more information and to provide your feedback on the proposed 26 Ave SW improvements between 14 Street and Sarcee Trail. 26 Avenue is an important east-west link in Calgary’s on-street bikeway network. It connects multiple schools and communities, the Rotary Mattamy Greenway, and the Max Teal BRT on 37 Street SW.

26 Avenue SW ranked highly in Bike Calgary’s recent analysis of gaps in the 5A Network. It has also seen multiple collisions between cyclists and motor vehicles in the past two years:

The existing conditions on this street are “shared lanes” between 14 St and Richmond Road, painted bike lanes between Richmond Road and 37 St SW, and “shared lanes” between 37 St and 51 St SW. At the west end of 26 Ave is a paved, shared use pathway connection to an active modes bridge over Sarcee Trail. At the east end, the shared bikeway jogs over a block to a pedestrian flasher crosswalk of 14 St at 25 Ave SW.

If you live in or travel through this area, please take some time to fill out the survey. You can also send your feedback to Bike Calgary at connect@bikecalgary.org

Bike Calgary is looking forward to advocating for safer and more comfortable cycling on this important link, and to working with the City of Calgary as designs are developed.
