Deerfoot Trail Study - Public Engagement Sessions

posted Jun 9, 2016, 5:25 AM by Douglas Ratke


 The City of Calgary and Alberta Transportation are working together to study Deerfoot Trail and recommend safety and mobility improvements. 
 
The study will consider a wide range of possible freeway management strategies, including some new to Calgary. The overall emphasis will be on maximizing the existing infrastructure, accommodating future growth and aligning with relevant long range planning documents, including the Calgary Transportation Plan.  
 
Deerfoot Trail is an urban expressway for Calgarians, connecting them to their community, workplace or destination.  
 
With up to 189,000 vehicles per day travelling on Deerfoot Trail we know there are challenges driving on this road. The study area is 37.5 km long, and includes 20 interchanges. Approximately 44 communities border the study area.
