Transportation routes for dangerous goods have been established to protect the safety of the community. See the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Bylaw for more information.

Advanced Traveller Information System
Calgary's Advanced Traveller Information System is designed to inform drivers of potential problems that may be encountered on trips around the city. This service is invaluable to Cochrane residents who commute to Calgary on a daily basis or just visit the city for recreation. This site lists roadwork and lane closures, travel notices (such as speed restrictions due to construction) as well as accidents during peak commuting hours. Visitors to the site can view images from traffic cameras placed around the city.

Please view the Traveller's Information site online and from there select traffic advisories, traffic cameras, roadwork or major delays. The Advanced Traveller Information System is provided by the City of Calgary's Transportation Planning Department.
