Would be nice if 26th had an on and off ramp to Crowchild at least on the east side of Crowchild. It would make things busier for 26th, but it would offload a lot of the traffic from 33rd..My hope is that the Main Streets improvements will cause drivers to use alternate routes. 50, Flanders, and 26 may prove to be better options for those who live on the periphery of the community but don’t need to pass through the BIA, once streets are narrowed, traffic calming measures are implemented, and traffic/pedestrian crossing signals are installed.

It would make things busier for 26th, but it would offload a lot of the traffic from 33rd and it might help 26th into coming more of a corridor.
Adding an exit to 26th Ave would risk turning one of the better opportunities for a high-capacity bicycle route with solid bus service on 26th into another car sewer, while not moving the needle on the congestion issues of 33rd. Cars are noble gases after all - they will fill whatever volume you give them.It's a scary thought but 33rd Ave, even with the changes for the main street, will still be exactly what it is today: Access to the businesses. Access to and from Crowchild for Mount Royal, Elbow Park, South Calgary, and Altadore. During peak travel times it will continue to gridlock. Opening up 26th will only really help South Calgary so it won't really move the needle. It's vital to the livability of the area to improve transit.
It's almost like they knew something all those years ago when they ran a street car to the area...
How can we speak up in favor of this?
There's no way a tunnel could ever make financial sense.42nd should have gone through to Crowchild and 26th needs on/off ramps. Next option is a tunnel.
Well that was probably one of the more annoying articles I’ve seen. Why do we do give such so much of a voice to negative nancies who have nothing better to do but complain?I could be wrong, but it sounds like 1900 Marda Loop is back in play.
The rezoning proposal would make way for a six-storey, 120-unit residential building with ground-floor commercial space along 33 Avenue S.W.globalnews.ca
