Phase One: Road Improvements



What's changing for phase one?

The proposed changes will improve traffic flow and safety for people who drive by providing more through travel lanes for AM peak traffic and by reducing the need to change lanes.

  • Parking on the north side of 12 Avenue between 4 Street S.W. and 5 Street S.W., will remain the same. Parking will be added to the south side of 12 Avenue with a no-stopping restriction from 7 – 8:30 a.m.
  • Parking on the north side of 12 Avenue between 5 Street S.W. and 6 Street S.W., will remain the same, with paid parking permitted between 9:00am and 6:00pm. Parking will be added to the south side of 12 Avenue with a no-stopping restriction from 7- 8:30 a.m.
  • Parking on the north side of 12 Avenue between 6 Street S.W. and 7 Street S.W., will be changed to no stopping at any time. Parking will be added to the south side of 12 Avenue with a no-stopping restriction from 7 – 8:30 a.m.
  • Parking on the north side of 12 Avenue between 7 Street S.W. and 8 Street S.W., will be changed to no stopping at any time. Parking will be added to the south side of 12 Avenue with a no-stopping restriction from 7 – 8:30 a.m.

  • Reconfiguring parking provides three through travel lanes for drivers during the morning commute.
  • Loading zones are being evaluated on a block-by-block basis. In some instances, they are being extended and moved to the south side of 12 Avenue or moved to a street adjacent to 12 Avenue.
  • There is minimal impact to the existing bus route along 12 Avenue. Minor adjustments may be needed to bus stop locations.

Phase Two: Western Extension of the Cycle Track



What's changing for Phase two?

  • A two-way cycle track is being built on the north side of 12 Avenue S.W. between 11 Street S.W. and 16 Street S.W. using flexible posts and pinned curb. The design for phase two will tie into cycle track and vehicle travel lanes east of 11 Street S.W.

  • Parking between 14 Street S.W. and 15 Street S.W. will be removed on both the north and south sides of 12 Avenue S.W. This will retain one eastbound left turn lane onto 14 Street S.W. as well as two eastbound through lanes for drivers during the morning commute.
  • Parking on the south side of 12 Avenue S.W. between 15 Street S.W. and 16 Street S.W. will be removed. Parking on the north side of 12 Avenue S.W. will remain the same, including a no-stopping restriction from 7 – 8:30 a.m. This retains two travel lanes for drivers during the morning commute.

What is engagement at The City of Calgary?

“Purposeful dialogue between The City and citizens and stakeholders to gather information to influence decision making.”

Engage Policy

Your input, and the input of other citizens and stakeholders, helps The City understand people’s perspectives, opinions, and concerns. Input collected in each phase of the project will be compiled and share through a What We Heard report.

Although it would be a great outcome, the goal of public engagement is not to reach consensus or make everyone happy. Public engagement is also not about voting or collecting representative information. Public engagement is about considering the input, ideas and perspectives of people who are interested or impacted by decisions, before decisions are made.
