What is going to happen in the future with Highway 8 and Glenmore Trail?
Engineering plans are complete to twin Highway 8 between Highway 22 through to 101st Street (the City limits). The Province of Alberta has not prioritized this twinning in its budget and it is not in its year capital plan. The expansion of Glenmore Trail between 101st Street and Sarcee Trail is an Alberta Transportation priority and is contingent on funding from the Province to complete Stoney Trail from the Trans Canada highway south, down 101st street to Glenmore Trail (immediately west of The Slopes). Traffic flow studies forecast the majority of truck traffic on Highway 8 will migrate to Stoney Trail once that ring road section is complete.
What about other housing developments west on Highway 8?
Land has been acquired between Range Road 32 to Range Road 34 on the south side by Qualico. Land has been acquired on the north side between Range Road 34 and Range Road 40 by Western Securities (the Gardner Lands). These lands may be developed if approved by Rocky View County and are likely contingent on the twinning of Highway 8 and the procurement of water licenses and sewage treatment approval from Rocky View County and the Province of Alberta. Further information is available through Rocky View County (www.rockyview.ca).Elbow Valley West has completed a noise study which forecasts that noise will not appreciate significantly upon twinning of Highway 8 given anticipated traffic patterns. A copy of this can be requested from the Elbow Valley West Condominium Corporation.
