November 2022 Traffic Update

HGC Engineering completed the LCA’s traffic noise study along Glenmore Trail in early September. The results show an increase in traffic noise at all 3 locations from 1-7 dBA during the 7-day measurement period (see map and chart below). The peak noise (L10) levels at each location for the Ladbrooke, Lockinvar and Lathom properties were 64.1, 67.8 and 62.7 dBA respectively. This compares with the peak noise measurements from our 2016 study of 62.7, 61.2 and 60.5 dBA recorded at the same 3 locations.

37 St SW Traffic Circle Construction Update

  • Construction started around the 37 St SW traffic circle this week (September 12) and is expected to continue into October. This will result in lane restrictions and possible full closure of the south side of the traffic circle to 58 Ave. Please watch the electronic signs for more details, reduce speed and obey all construction personnel directing traffic.
  • Also, drivers please be aware that construction vehicles are moving through the intersection of Grey Eagle Drive and 37 St SW/Grey Eagle Boulevard and yield appropriately.

October 2022 Traffic Update

Lakeview residents may have noticed when driving on southbound Sarcee Trail to eastbound Glenmore Trail, the access road onto 37 St SW has been permanently closed. An explanation from Alberta Transportation on why this happened, has been copied below.

The ongoing construction of the barrier on eastbound Glenmore Trail is part of completion of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road and aligns with the design for access in this area as approved by the City of Calgary as part of the community development plan for Lakeview.

During construction of the project, temporary access from southbound Sarcee to eastbound Glenmore Trail to 37th Street SW was provided to facilitate improved community access while the work continued.

Now that access is available at Tsuut’ina Parkway, vehicles going southbound on Sarcee Trail can access Lakeview via the new interchange at Tsuut’ina Parkway. Alternatively, drivers from southbound Sarcee Trail could also choose to go to Crowchild Trail to access Lakeview. And a third option is for vehicles to exit southbound Sarcee Trail onto Westhills Way, navigate through the roundabouts and onto eastbound Glenmore Trail to then exit at 37th Street SW.

Elimination of the temporary access and accompanying weave pattern allows the speed limit on the flyover ramp from Sarcee Trail to eastbound Glenmore to be posted at 80 km/hour rather than the 60 km/hour limit posted during construction.”

Other updates:

  • The Glenmore Trail Noise Study will be completed by the end of September. There was a delay due to an equipment malfunction at one of the locations causing the final data collection to be pushed back to early September. A summary of the study will be shared with community members in the November News & Views, on the LCA website and at our AGM on September 27.
  • KGL (Ring Road project manager), has confirmed that there will be ongoing construction throughout September/October 2022 around the 37 St SW traffic circle including installation of a retaining wall and sidewalk improvements on the east side of 37 St SW (south of the traffic circle).
  • On August 30 from 7:30 to 8:30am, CPS Officer Richard Wall hosted a speed watch at 63 Ave SW playground zone. During this time, 101 vehicles were counted and 15 vehicles were speeding or 15% of the total number. The highest recorded speed was 54 km/h. Remember, if a vehicle hits a pedestrian at 30 km/h, they have a 5% fatality rate, whereas if a vehicle hits a pedestrian at 70 km/h, they have a 95% fatality rate. For the safety of all Lakeview residents, please slow down!
  • The traffic committee has a sandwich sign on loan from the City of Calgary that says ‘Residential Area – Drive Safely’. If you would like to have this sign for a one-week period to place outside your home, please send an email to [email protected].

If you have any traffic concerns or questions, please send an email to [email protected].

Stay safe this fall!

July 2022 Traffic Update

Here are some areas of concern that the traffic committee has been working on:

  • HGC Engineering will be in the field at three locations in Lakeview from May 31 – June 7 to collect traffic noise data from Glenmore Trail SW on behalf of the Lakeview Community Association. A summary of their report will be shared with community members in the October News & Views, on the LCA website and at our AGM on September 28. A big thank you to the 3 households that allowed this monitoring to take place on their properties!
  • The City of Calgary has confirmed that vehicle traffic counts will be taken on 58 Ave, 54 Ave and 37 St in September or October 2022. This will allow the LCA to understand how the traffic flow has changed in our neighbourhood with the addition of the 37 St SW traffic circle.
  • On May 17 from 7:30 to 10:00am, CPS Officer Richard Wall hosted a speed watch on 58 Ave and 37 St to determine how many vehicles were speeding along those roads. In the 58 Ave playground zone (by Connect Charter School) 190 vehicles passed by this location and 23 vehicles were speeding or 12% of the total vehicles. On 37 St (just south of 61 Ave), 40 vehicles passed by and 5 vehicles were speeding or 13% of the total vehicles. All of these 5 speeding vehicles were driven by Lakeview residents and one vehicle was clocked at 76 km/h! If a vehicle hits a pedestrian at 30 km/h, they have a 5% fatality rate, whereas if a vehicle hits a pedestrian at 70 km/h, they have a 95% fatality rate. For the safety of all Lakeview residents, please slow down!
  • One of the main concerns I hear about is Calgary Transit, school buses, garbage trucks and delivery vehicles speeding throughout Lakeview. I can say from conducting 4 speed watches with Officer Wall over the past 2 years, that we have not observed any of these vehicles to be exceeding the speed limit to warrant a speeding ticket. The confusion lies in that many residents assume that a loud vehicle is a speeding vehicle and that is usually not the case with trucks or buses. These vehicles lack the noise mitigation equipment that most cars and SUVs have to baffle their engine/exhaust noise and therefore you think that these vehicles are speeding due to this excessive noise when, more likely, they are not.
  • The traffic committee has a sandwich sign on loan from the City of Calgary that says ‘Residential Area – Drive Safely’. If you would like to have this sign for a one-week period to place outside your home, please send an email to [email protected].
  • Some clarifications on where vehicles are permitted and not permitted to do U-turns:
    • A U-turn is permitted at an intersection when it can be made safely and without impeding traffic.
    • A U-turn is not permitted at an intersection with a traffic signal, a no U-turn sign, on a curve or on any road between intersections.

If you have any traffic concerns or questions, please send an email to [email protected].

Stay safe this summer!

Rink Opening – Nov 30, 12pm

November 30, 2020 

Lakeview Community Association (LCA) – Rink Opening Noon, November 30, 2020 

Thank you to all of those who have provided input and thoughts regarding the safety of the LCA rinks. The focus during the recent temporary closure of the rink was to take the necessary time to plan a rink environment that is as safe as possible. As stated previously the safety and well-being of all Lakeview residents is of utmost importance. 

I have received an overwhelming amount of offers of assistance to address the real concerns that the LCA Executive have. The positive feedback and the constructive suggestions that were offered shows how this community is willing to come together and work as a team. COVID-19 is a serious challenge, and we all need to play our part to keep our community safe 

The result from the recent community meeting is that the rinks will be opened effective noon on November 30, 2020. There will be a number of actions that will be completed in the coming days that will address the safety concerns that the LCA Executive identified. These actions will assist everyone, on and off the rink, to meet the government mandates. Thank you for your patience as we worked through these action plans. 

The primary concerns and action plans are as follows: 

  1. Total capacity on each of the rinks.  
  1. Skaters are asked to keep the maximum quantity of skaters on a single rink to 25. 
  1. We are also asking skaters to be aware of the amount of time that they are using the ice to ensure that everyone can equally enjoy the rink. 
  1. Lack of social distancing, on and off the rink.  
  1. Benches are being built that will provide space for people to safely put on their skates while maintaining a 2-meter distance. The benches will be distributed around the perimeter of the rink so that the 10-person mandate can be kept.  
  1. People not skating on the rinks are asked to maintain social distances and wear masks when needed. We are also encouraging people to BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair) similar to summer sports. 
  1. Communication to LCA Members. 
  1. Signage in the area will be improved to provide clear guidance about what is needed to comply with the Alberta mandate.  
  1. Signage will also provide community expectations about the common use of the rink. 

There has been much discussion about expecting individual responsibility and ownership to protect themselves and others while using the rink. I believe this will happen. The actions taken recently will provide a safer environment and help us make better choices moving forward.  

Thank you again to everyone in the Lakeview community, the LCA Rink Rats and the Board of Directors for their work.  

Be safe, have fun “… and skate where the puck is going.”
