Won’t traffic be reduced to two lanes on Centre Street because of the LRT? And won’t that create more problems with congestion?
Centre Street North will remain a four-lane roadway through the traffic signal at McKnight Boulevard, to ensure adequate through-put for traffic. At the request of The City, the development will also provide enough land along Centre Street North to fit the LRT, four lanes of traffic, and wide pedestrian boulevards.
Plans for Centre Street elsewhere will be finalized as part of the LRT planning process, which will have separate public engagement opportunities from The City of Calgary.
