Centre Avenue Improvements

The Town of Cochrane is making changes to Centre Avenue as part of a larger project plan to reduce traffic congestion and improve community connectivity in Cochrane. Town Council identified these goals as being critical to planning for Cochrane’s future.

The redesign and construction of Centre Avenue will provide immediate traffic flow benefits for residents, commuters and visitors using this corridor during peak times:
