Is there a design for the underpass reconstruction posted above? How many train underpasses are left now that need a renovation?

Is that first one Bowness Park? there are a bunch of hiking trails around where the Stony bridge meets the slope, but now that they are twinning Stony there, I think a lot of the really nice trails are gone.

Yeah I just from the west and of Bowness Park. There used to be a trail that continued west under the stony trail bridge along the Bow River but it’s closed now, the sign says temporary closure so I’m assuming it open again. I hope so.

Looks like a new community broke ground in the SW, and judging from the renders it looks like it may turn out pretty nice. I do find it ridiculous that that are comparing a suburb in the deep southwest to the distillery district in TO though. Hopefully things can turn out just like planned and i'm optimistic they will.

The community will provide
- 20 000 jobs over the next 15 years
-1750 new jobs per year
- residences for ~15 000 people

Looks like at first it will be just home being built then as density and population increase it will move to more commercial/ Mixed use developments throughout the planned 15 years. Its nice to see developers planning communities in Calgary that are more than just suburban sprawl. Once complete I'm hoping this will have a lot of character to it.
