Northwest Extension Construction
(Dalhousie to Crowfoot)
The Northwest Line will be extended 4 km further from Dalhousie Station continuing in the median of Crowchild Trail NW. This extension started construction in 2005 with the widening of Crowchild Trail and the construction of an interchange at Sarcee Trail/Silver Springs Gate. The new Crowfoot Station opened on June 15, 2009 (many months behind schedule).
The station will have about 1350 parking stalls. This is an appropriate number for a terminal station. ParkPlus will be likely be installed for the opening.
The name of the station was expected to be Crowfoot-Centennial. The Crowfoot half was derived from the proximity to the Crowfoot Towne Centre. The Centennial half came from the fact that the Provincial government approved the funding as part of the new Alberta Municipal Infrastructure Program in Alberta's Centennial year of 2005. However, naming the station simply Crowfoot has prevailed.
