City of Calgary Crowchild Trail Upgrades: Completion of the Short-Term Improvements

We’d like to provide you with our last update relating to the Crowchild Trail Upgrades Project!

We’re pleased to announce that all major upgrades involved in this project are complete. While you will notice a few skeleton crews putting some finishing touches on this project through to the end of this construction season, the new lanes are open, traffic flow has been improved over the Bow River and we hope you’ve had the chance to take advantage of the increased connectivity to our pathway network.

While the medium and long-term plans for Crowchild Trail are approved, they remain unfunded. More information can be found here.

We’d like to personally thank you for your support, patience and understanding while our crews worked next to your homes, businesses and communities. We could have never done it without you. We’ve created a video that summarizes the innovation behind this project and our sincerest thanks to our fellow Calgarians.

See below pictures of all that’s been accomplished

Waste & Recycling Services Update – September 2020

Starting October 1, remember to tag your extra garbage bags

Starting October 1, if you have an extra bag of garbage that won’t fit in your City black cart, you’ll need to buy a garbage tag. Tags are $3 each and available at participating convenience and grocery stores or online. See the full list at

How to use garbage tags:

  1. Fill your black cart first.
  2. Place extra garbage in a bag and wrap a tag around the knot on top of the bag.
  3. On collection day, set the bag 0.5 metres (2 feet) from your black cart.

We encourage everyone to look at what you are buying and throwing away to find ways to reduce waste. Sorting materials correctly helps maximize the use of all three carts (blue, green, black).
