Calgarians have the opportunity to contribute their ideas to the long-term plans concerning Macloed Trail, one of the busiest roads in the city.
The study will consider and identify opportunities to improve community access along with walking, cycling, transit, roadway operations and safety along Macleod Trail from 26 Ave South to Anderson Road.
“Macleod Trail is an important roadway for those who live, work, and travel through the area,” says Mathew MacDonald, Transportation Engineer with The City.
Citizens, communities, businesses and travellers who regularly use this section of Macleod Trail are invited to complete an online survey that will be available until Friday, May 4. Just click on this link
to get to the survey.
“We want to hear from anyone who uses this corridor during the week. Their feedback will help identify top priority issues and help shape future transportation plans for Macleod Trail.”
The new Macleod Trail Corridor Study is considered to be a long-term planning study. The study will update the decades old 1968 Macleod Trail Functional Planning Report and will be streamlined with the 2009 Calgary Transportation Plan along with planning initiatives in the area.
