Three highway projects in the Town of Cochrane are identified in the top 20 needed in the north Calgary region, according to the North Calgary Regional Transportation Study presented to Council at their June 24 meeting.

One hundred and sixty-one projects were evaluated, including transit, corridor and interchange projects.

“This report reflects our message that we need a provincial investment in the highway infrastructure in our community,” said Mayor Jeff Genung. “And I am optimistic that Alberta Transportation will use the results of this study in identifying their funding priorities.”

Cochrane projects in the top 20:

  • #3:   Twinning Highway 1A from Gleneagles Drive to Highway 22
  • #10:     Highway 1A/22 interchange
  • #20:     Widening Highway 22 from Highway 1 to Highway 1A (4 lanes)

Projects that impact Cochrane in the top 20:

  • #13: Widening Highway 22 from Highway 1A to Township Road 264
  • #19: Widening the 1A from Hwy 766 to Calgary’s western city limit

In 2016, Alberta Transportation directed the City of Calgary, City of Airdrie and Rocky View County to collectively identify transportation infrastructure priorities along the QEII in the north Calgary region. Through this process, it was determined that the including the City of Chestermere and the Town of Cochrane would add value to viewing the overall transportation network in the north Calgary region. Grant funding was used to hire a consultant to complete the study.

By developing a consistent set of network priorities that reflect planned land use and growth, the resulting study is intended to serve as an example of how infrastructure priorities can be determined for the region, and to assist Alberta Transportation in identifying funding priorities.

The full report, including the ranked list of the top 34 projects, is posted on cochrane.ca.
