Deerfoot Trail / Glenmore Trail Interchange

With typical weekday traffic volumes averaging more than 130,000 vehicles per day (vpd) on the interchange and 100,000 vpd along Glenmore Trail, the interchange at Glenmore Trail/Deerfoot Trail is one of the busiest in Calgary. A Functional Planning Study (FPS) was completed and approved by Alberta Transportation in March 2008. In this FPS, recommendations were made for the improvements to the interchange for first (interim) and ultimate stages.

Alberta Transportation has retained CH2M HILL as Prime Consultant for the design and implementation of first stage interchange improvements at Glenmore Trail and Deerfoot Trail.  This upgraded interchange will play a key role in Alberta’s north-south trade corridor and the City of Calgary’s skeletal road network.

The interchange improvement strategy is based upon a previously-completed functional planning study and public consultation; the main features include:

  • new vehicle bridge adjacent to existing (east side) over Glenmore Trail
  • realignment and geometric improvements of loops and ramps
  • addition of one core lane in both directions on Deerfoot Trail over Glenmore Trail
  • addition of extra lanes and shoulder widening on Deerfoot Trail north and south of Glenmore Trail
  • addition of collector-distributor lanes on southbound Deerfoot Trail and eastbound Glenmore Trail

Design activities are complete. Tender and construction are subject to Provincial funding priorities.

Project Completion: To be determined
