In the spring of 2015, the community of Montgomery voiced concerns about poor sidewalks and crosswalks for pedestrians, and vehicles making illegal or unsafe left turns into parking lots along 16 Avenue N.W. between 46 Street N.W. and 49 Street N.W. They were also concerned about poor facilities and connections for cyclists along Home Road.
To address these concerns, The City prepared a preliminary design that was shared with the community for feedback at an open house in November 2015. After receiving feedback from the community, the design was revised and shared with the community at an information session in June 2016. Some minor changes were made to the design based on feedback from the community and technical analysis.
The planned improvements for this area are designed to improve traffic operations by directing vehicles to follow designated traffic lanes through this area, increase the safety of pedestrians trying to cross 16 Avenue N.W. at Home Rd, and prevent motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents from occurring.
The plans and conceptual drawings that were presented to the community can be viewed on the project engagement page. Since the information session in June 2016 the bike lane design and the improvements along 16 Avenue N.W. have been revised using community feedback.

Consultation with the community of Montgomery began in the spring of 2015. A series of meetings with the Montgomery Community Association took place throughout the design phase of the project. A public open house and information session were held to share the preliminary and final design with the community.
