The Expansion of Peigan Trail SE

The City of Calgary is in the preliminary planning stage of this project and they do not have detailed designs related to the expansion of Peigan Trail from Barlow Trial S.E. to 84 Street S.E.

The City of Calgary is in the preliminary planning stage of this project and they do not have detailed designs related to the expansion of Peigan Trail from Barlow Trial S.E. to 84 Street S.E. (with the  railway crossing initially envisioned to remain as an at-grade crossing).

The Peigan Trail S.E. Expansion is listed as a high priority item in The City’s 2015-2024 Transportation Infrastructure Investment Plan (TIIP).

When funding is confirmed for the next budget cycle, the community will be able to have these concerns addressed in the detailed design. While the Peigan Trail twinning project is unfunded and included in the next 4-year capital projects plan, it will be discussed by the Council in November.

When funding is confirmed and the project will proceed with the detailed design, The City will be engaging affected community associations and business owners in the discussions.

In order to prepare for the future detail design and construction phase of this project, ISL Engineering has been retained by The City to complete this preliminary engineering report.

A few options have been looked at regarding the access to Forest Lawn Auto Parts, and there is a recommended option for the access. However, The City has only taken the design to preliminary engineering and more design work will still need to happen.

About the project

The preliminary engineering phase includes:

  • record existing roadway conditions
  • coordinate required utility work
  • complete preliminary stormwater design
  • complete preliminary roadway design, and
  • examine environmental impacts and mitigations.

The project scope includes approximately 6.5 kilometres of Peigan Trail from Barlow Trail in the west to 84 Street in the east. Much of Peigan Trail is a two-lane roadway; this project will investigate the expansion to four-lanes, as well as the ultimate six-lanes.

The preliminary engineering report will be completed in early 2018. Confirmation of the next project phases will be made by early 2019 when current and future projects are prioritized and confirmed for funding.

Project timeline

January 2017 – Preliminary engineering phase begins. 
Early 2018 – Completion of preliminary engineering design. 
June 2018 – Finalize preliminary engineering report.
