Over the summer of 2019 a number of neighbourhood traffic calming projects will take place. These projects are small scale in nature and involve crosswalk improvements and curb extensions in certain locations to improve the experience for pedestrians and drivers in these areas. Below is a list of locations that will be addressed.
Rundle Drive Near Bridge Road
Median crossing blocks will be installed at both of the crossing locations on Rundle Drive just past the Bow River Bridge. This will increase the visibility of people walking in the crossings, slow speed and improve traffic flow by narrowing the crossing distance. The 30 km/h zone will be extended to include both crosswalks on Rundle Drive. The photos below are examples of median crossing blocks from other municipalities.
Fairholme Drive & 14 Street
A new crossing will be installed across Fairholme Drive at the corner of 14 street to connect to the new Roam bus stop being added in that location. The new crossing will feature median crossing blocks for added visibility and shorter crossing distances for pedestrians.
10 Street Near Fire Hall
Median crossing blocks will be installed at the crossing near the fire hall on 10 street.
Cougar Creek Drive & Grizzly Crescent
Curb extensions will be installed at the corner closest to the park of Cougar Creek Drive and Grizzly Crescent. These will provide better sightlines to the crossings in these areas.
