Town of Canmore

Council Clips – September 15, 2020

Main Street Re-opens to Vehicles Sept. 24

Main Street will re-open to vehicular traffic on Thursday, Sept. 24. Formal, annually-permitted in-street patios are allowed to remain in place until Oct. 15.  When the street re-opens to vehicles, many of the traffic pattern changes made over the summer will remain in place – including a speed limit of 30 km/h in the Town Centre. Main Street is envisioned as a local business area, not a main thoroughfare through town. Visit https://canmore.ca/residents/about-canmore/canmore-latest-news/957-pedestrian-main-street for a map of traffic pattern changes.
