Project update - December 2022
In 2022, we installed curb extensions in the community. Curb extensions are one of the most effective ways of reducing potential conflicts between people driving, wheeling, and walking, and make sharing the road a safer and more predictable experience for everyone. They also help control speed in areas that have many pedestrians. Crews also paved several walkways in the community to increase accessibility for those with wheelchairs, strollers, and more.
About the project
As part of the Established Area Growth and Change (EAGCS) Strategy, the community of Altadore was identified as a growth area in the city seeing increased pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
The goal of this project is to improve existing conditions for people walking and wheeling and upgrading park and recreation infrastructure. Improvements include:
- upgrading walkways
- adding missing pathway connections
- implementing traffic calming
The project team met with stakeholders in November 2021 and public engagement was held online from November 29 - December 15, with two virtual open house events.
The project team shared the overall designs and participants provided feedback, which can be found in the What We Heard Report.
During engagement, we heard support for improving walkways, mixed feedback on the proposed traffic calming improvements, and interest in design changes to the bike paths/lane.
Proposed improvements include upgrading walkways, adding missing pathway connections, implementing traffic calming measures, and more.
- Final design - Spring 2022
- Construction - 2022
