Default Circumnavigating Calgary

Someone tell me the fastest way around/through Calgary in morning rush?

Staying over in Strathmore, so it would put us right in rush hour getting to Calgary. I imagine following #1 {16th ave.} would be packed. Take 201 north and go around?

Thanks

I would think Stony trail would be the fastest way in rush hour. Its generally not too busy. But watch for speed traps on the NW end of it. Non rush hour its faster to come through town, which road would depend on what direction you're heading.

A west heading. So that would be the 201 then. Turn north on it @ junction of 16/trans. and Stoney Trail.

Thanks guys. Thats the way I will go around.

If it was me I would take 817 to 564 to Stoney and around back to #1 or just take #1 to Stoney. But either way Stoney will be faster, rush hour or not.

Why some of you guys live in Calgary is beyond me! Calgary is traffic jam central. It has to be one of the worst cities I have ever driven in. Right up there with Los Angeles. Albeit LA is the only place I have ever been in 6 lanes of traffic jam.

ya it can be rough some days. I sometimes wish that all those thousands of saskatchewanians that moved to Calgary over the past few years would move back..
