ITE Northern Alberta Section Luncheon
January 13, 2016@11:40 am to 1:00 pm UTC+0
The designer’s tool kit for planning interchanges continues to evolve. The presentation will provide highlights on the planning and implementation of two innovative new interchanges under construction in Calgary. First, the Crowchild Trail / Flanders Avenue interchange, which will be the first in Alberta to feature multiple dual-lane roundabouts, a solution that responded to the unique challenge of constructing an interchange with seven roadway legs in a constrained urban redevelopment area. Second, the Macleod Trail / 162 Avenue SE interchange, which serves suburban commuters and major shopping centres, and which will be the first Diverging Diamond Interchange in Canada when it opens to traffic in 2017.
