Crowchild Trail Upgrades .. September 2019 Update from City of Calgary

We’d like to provide you with a few updates relating to the Crowchild Trail Upgrades Project:

1) New Signalized Crossing: Parkdale Boulevard & Kensington Road N.W.

Goes into effect – Thursday, September 5

We have installed a brand-new signalized crossing along Parkdale Boulevard so pedestrians and cyclists have a dedicated, more direct connection to the Bow River Pathway Network. You may notice some traffic control on-site later this afternoon and evening while the signalized crossing is being officially activated.

2) New Signalized Intersection: 10 Avenue S.W. & Bow Trail 

Goes into effect Saturday, September 7

The road and tie-in work is complete and the new signalized intersection will go into effect on Saturday. This means that police officers will be on-site directing and managing traffic temporarily while the signals are being activated. Please drive slowly through the area and allot a bit of extra time if you’re going that way.

3) Home Stretch Of Roadwork Along NB Crowchild Trail & EB Bow Trail Area

Friday, September 6 (9 p.m.) – Tuesday, September 10 (5 a.m.)

We are entering the final push to complete the majority of roadwork along the northbound Crowchild Trail/eastbound Bow Trail S.W. area. This final push entails milling and paving work, along with an increase in construction activity this weekend.

What does an increase in construction activity entail?

  • An increase in loud, disruptive overnight work (including asphalt milling and paving on Sunday and Monday nights respectively) between the hours of 9 p.m. – 5 a.m.
  • An increase in the number of workers on-site.

We’re thankful for your continued patience.

Bobcats in Brentwood

Several bobcats have been seen in Brentwood especially in the area of Bannerman Drive.  A bobcat attacking a human is extremely unlikely, as they hunt rabbits, hares and small mammals like mice and squirrels.  Bobcats are opportunistic hunters and may attack domestic pets.  It is suggested to keep cats indoors and have small dogs supervised as they may be vulnerable.  More information and tips to prevent bobcats from coming into your property and steps to take when bobcats are encountered can be found here:  https://www.alberta.ca/bobcats.aspx

The Alberta government is responsible for wildlife management.  Fish & Wildlife officers receive many reports of bobcat sightings each year; they will respond when an animal is injured, makes contact with a person or there are some other extraordinary circumstance. Again, citizens can obtain more information by accessing:  https://www.alberta.ca/bobcats.aspxThe City of Calgary Community Peace Officers are not trained in the handling or capture of wildlife nor are equipped to trap or immobilize wildlife.
