Palliser Trail is identified as an important link in the town’s network of walking and cycling infrastructure. It is also seeing increased development, and the Town has prioritized making improvements to the transportation infrastructure along this corridor, to connect it with the Town Centre and other community amenities.

Background/Project Information

  • The current configuration of Palliser Trail contains more space than is needed to maintain a high level of service for automobile travel. 
  • There is an opportunity to redesign Palliser Trail to better accommodate all modes of travel including people walking, cycling, taking transit, and driving. 
  • Spaces where people walk and cycle will be physically separated from vehicle traffic by concrete medians and green spaces.
  • Pedestrian crossings will have median refuges added, allowing people to cross the road one direction of traffic at a time.
  • Intersections will be redesigned to better accommodate all modes of travel.
  • Left and right turn lanes will be kept where required to accommodate vehicular turn movements.

Project Design

The concept design will be posted the week of January 21, 2019.
