Cochrane's Traffic Plan

We know traffic is an issue. We have a plan to address it.

The plan starts next year with an investment in widening Highway 1A from the bottom of the Big Hill until just past Sixth Avenue.

Watch for construction details coming soon.

Highway 1A upgrades


Traffic in Cochrane is an increasing source of frustration for the community, impacting the flow of goods, services and people in and around our community. 

This project is one piece of the traffic solution puzzle. Recent improvements to Griffin Road, completion of the Jack Tennant Memorial Bridge and connecting roadway, and phase 1 of the Centre Avenue improvements are all part of the overall solution that has been implemented to date.

The 2019 provincial budget included funds to proceed with the much-needed upgrades to the Highway 1A/22 interchange; the province is continuing to plan for the work, but no start date has been identified.
