(upon redevelopment of the McMahon/Foothills lands).

16 Avenue N.W. East Segment improvements moving forward in the short-term:

The short-term recommended plan focuses on safety improvements along 16 Avenue identified through the South Shaganappi Study, a traffic safety review and discussions with the community.

  • Multi-use crosswalks added at 16 Avenue N.W. and 29 Street N.W. so that people who wheel do not need to dismount
  • New MAX Orange station added in front of the Calgary Cancer Centre
  • Pathway connection on west side of 29 Street N.W. restored with completion of the Calgary Cancer Centre
  • Dual right turn signalized to manage merge from Bowness Road to westbound 16 Avenue N.W.
  • New ramp from southbound Shaganappi Trail to eastbound 16 Avenue N.W. to improve merge and minimize impacts to existing trees
  • 50 km/h speed limit shifted further east past Bowness Road to provide lower speed approaches to new traffic signals and Montgomery
