The City of Calgary is starting a transportation corridor study to explore the future design for the south end of Shaganappi Trail. The study area includes the Shaganappi Trail and 16 Avenue interchange, the Shaganappi Trail and Bowness Road intersection and the Bowness Road and 16 Avenue interchange.
This system was built in the late 1960s. What was planned then is no longer appropriate today, especially with the removal of the river crossing and the reclassification of Shaganappi Trail to support all modes of transportation including walking, cycling, driving, HOV (high occupancy vehicles), and transit. In addition, in order to maintain the system and keep it operational, it will need rehabilitation within the next 20 years.
This study will help us understand how to reconfigure the road network to meet Shaganappi Trail’s new street classification. Furthermore, it will help us understand how to reconnect the adjacent communities of Montgomery and Parkdale to provide safe access throughout and across the corridor as well as determine the best land use for the area.
You are receiving this invite because you have been identified as an important stakeholder. Please join us on November 19, 2015 at an open house to learn more about the South Shaganappi Study and how your input can help shape the project.

About the study
In 2009, Council approved the Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP). It reclassified Shaganappi Trail to an Arterial Street from a Skeletal Road . In addition, the CTP confirmed that the Bow River crossing recommendation would be removed. This means that Shaganappi Trail will no longer function as a north to south connector across the river.
These changes require us to revisit how Shaganappi Trail should be designed in the south end. The South Shaganappi Study will work with stakeholders to determine the best way of addressing these challenges and ensure the future design of the study area meets the needs of the community.
