The city wants to know what the public thinks of its plan to upgrade Crowchild Trail and has released a new concept for Calgarians to consider.

The city is conducting a transportation corridor study for the busy roadway between 24 Avenue N.W. and 17 Avenue S.W.

The Corridor Study includes concept options for Crowchild Trail where it intersects with 5 Avenue and Kensington Road. N.W.

The newly released concept also includes two new bridges over the Bow River, interchanges and ramps.

The study gives different scenarios for access to and from Crowchild Trail and Calgarians are invited to provide their feedback through an online survey.

The cost of the upgrades is estimated at close to $1 billion and so far funding has not been secured.

The city will be holding two public information sessions so Calgarians can review the plans.
