Alberta communities identify preferred right of way overpasses to improve traffic flow and safety
Updated: Dec 19, 2021
Didsbury, Alberta - December 16th 2021 - Economic Development teams have worked closely with Alberta Regional Rail to identify and begin the grant application process for vehicle and pedestrian overpasses along the Canadian Pacific Railway Right of Way.
This safety measure is long overdue, and may remove the requirement for trains to sound their horns each time they approach a town.
Although passenger rail trains no longer stop in communities between Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta Regional Rail expects that to change by 2027.
There are plans to construct pedestrian overpasses as well as a vehicle overpass to make each community more bike and pedestrian friendly.
