We are working on transportation improvement projects in the Bow Valley Trail & Teepee Town areas to enhance how residents move in and within these communities.
Phase 2A (2024 Project) - Bow Valley Trail East and Hospital Place
Work will begin on this phase of the project starting in March 2024. The scope of work includes:
- Replacement of underground utilities
- Drainage improvements
- Construction of separated cycle and pedestrian pathways from Williams Street to Hospital Place
Phase 2B (2027 Project) - 2 Avenue
The scope of work includes:
- Replacement/rehabilitation of underground utilities
- Surface improvements (street and sidewalk) on 2 Ave from the end of Phase 2A to 17 Street
- Raised intersections at 13 St/2 Ave and 15 St/2 Ave
- Improvements to drainage adjacent to Bow Valley Trail
The opportunity to provide feedback on this area took place in February 2023.
Elk Run Boulevard and Glacier Drive were initially constructed in the 1980's and 1990's, with only minor lifecycle maintenance completed since. The corridor requires replacement of some deep utilities as well as surface lifecycle pavement rehabilitation work.
Current project includes:
- gathering feedback from the public on use and experiences in the area,
- developing a concept design,
- developing a preliminary cost estimate,
- Concept design and cost estimate will be brought forward as part of the budget process in the fall of 2022 for consideration as a capital project in future years.
- Future public feedback will be needed on the concept design, once the project is closer to starting construction.
To read a report on what we heard during phase one click here. The timeline for the project has been delayed, as a result the second phase of feedback will take place in late 2023 or early 2024.

Railway Avenue is a key transportation corridor. It is due for underground utility work and at the same time we will be making sure its design is consistent with the goals set out in the Integrated Transportation Plan. This project has been split into three main sections - Railway Ave South (complete), Railway Ave Central and Railway Ave North.
Goals for the project include:
- Enable a greater range of transportation options and opportunities for residents and visitors.
- Apply a functional and recognizable street design that accommodates all modes: walking, cycling, transit, goods movement, private passenger vehicles.
- Apply best practice guidelines for street design that will enable 40% non-vehicular travel at peak times (summer, long weekends).
- Facilitate movement of people into the Town Centre and encourage through-traffic and transportation of goods around the Town Centre.
Get Involved - Railway Avenue Central Concept Design Refinement - May 16, 2023
This phase of engagement has concluded, thank you for providing your input. You can find a summary of the engagement and updated concept plans on the engagement page.
Railway Ave Central
Railway Avenue Central is focused around the Main and 10th Street intersections and connects through new pedestrian and cycle facilities to the north and south sections of Railway. Intersections are proposed to be protected, similar to the new intersection at the Shops of Canmore corner on Bow Valley Trail/Railway Avenue.
Updated Concept Designs (after public engagement):
- Railway Ave Updated Concept Design EP to Main (1.96 MB)
