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.
Project update - June 2022
Beginning this weekend, four walkways in Altadore will be temporarily closed for upgrades so those walking and wheeling in the area have increased mobility and accessibility. The work will take City crews approximately one month (pending weather conditions), and closure signage will be in place for the duration. These improvements will provide the neighbourhood, local businesses, and visitors with an improved public realm for safe, easy, and accessible travel. They were identified through past community engagement and technical reviews of the area.
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. Proposed improvements include:
- upgrading walkways
- adding missing pathway connections
- implementing traffic calming
- and more
In November 2021, the project team met with stakeholders, including homeowners and more. 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.
- Final design - Spring 2022
- Construction - 2022
