Currently, the Canadian Pacific (CP) Railway crossing along 50 Street is identified as the city’s top priority location for grade separation based on factors including delays, traffic impact and the frequency of train crossings.
Traffic volumes and congestion at the crossing are set to increase as there is ongoing development along 50 Street.
The 50 Street Widening & CP Rail Grade Separation project will create an overpass for vehicles and active transport users as well as widening a stretch of 50 Street.
Pre-construction activities will begin this year including building a detour that will be used during construction, which is anticipated to begin in 2022. The project is expected to be complete by the end of 2026.
