Macleod Trail & 162nd Street SE Interchange

Location: Calgary, AB

Graham joined the broader project team when the design was only 60% complete and suggested several design and efficiency improvements. The result was a uniquely designed interchange at Macleod Trail and 162 Avenue SE, where north-south traffic on Macleod Trail is now free-flowing and east-west traffic travels along two bridges that form a basketweave structure – Canada’s first diverging diamond interchange.

The interchange is an integral part of the City of Calgary’s overall transportation network, helping to enhance Macleod Trail as a free-flow getaway into the City from provincial highway networks. The final interchange design improves mobility for commuters, cyclists and pedestrians while accommodating access to surrounding businesses and services. By having Graham join the project team before the design was complete, the City saved nearly $2M.
