Ward 1 official websiteConstruction Notice - April 13, 2016

52 Street N.W. Cycle Track Improvements

In the spring of 2015, The City met with stakeholders and held a public open house to get input about how the 52 Street N.W. and 53 Street N.W. Bikeways could be improved. For the 52 Street N.W. cycle track, the City heard pedestrian and cycling connections, improved aesthetics regarding the cycle track barriers and signage and traffic calming and reducing shortcutting were priorities.

The project team has developed an improvement plan to address those priorities, including new curb extensions at Home Road and Bowness Road, a new crosswalk and wheelchair ramp at Home Road and replacing some of the barriers with delineator posts. 52 Street N.W. will also be re-paved as part of this improvement project, and portions of the gravel driveway accesses to the Bowmont Park parking lot and Maranatha Church will be paved.

Speed humps were also investigated for additional traffic calming, but were not included because of the steep grade and because 52 Street N.W. is an emergency response route (any devices that would slow emergency response vehicles are not permitted).

Please see the image on the reverse for additional details about the improvements. For more information about the project, please visit 52 St NW cycle track improvements.


Construction

You may have already noticed some sidewalk markings in the area for survey. The concrete work is expected to begin this week (week of April 11) and take approximately one month. Some temporary sidewalk and pathway closures will be required for this construction. Paving, road marking and signage improvements will happen in July. Please sign up for the email distribution list at calgary.ca/bike projects so the City can send updates and keep you informed about upcoming work.
If you have any questions, please call or email Tamille at 403.475.1215 or tamille@russellpr.ca. They will make every effort to minimize disruptions. Thank you for your patience during construction.
