      Description:

      https://www.edmonton.ca/projects_plans/roads/bike_routes/connect-43-ave.aspx

      The City of Edmonton is developing a concept plan for a Shared-Use Path (SUP) along 43 Avenue from 106 Street to 119 Street, with construction scheduled for 2017.

      We invite you to attend our drop-in Community Event for the following opportunities:
      -Review the 43 Ave SUP draft concept plan
      -Provide input on key destinations along the path, including placement of aesthetic elements (benches, landscaping and points of interest)
      -Obtain information on preparing for winter recreational activities (running, cycling, cross-country skiing)
      -Enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages

      The 43 Avenue route was chosen based on previous public feedback to replace the 40 Avenue bike lanes. The majority of the selected alignment is located through the existing pipeline corridor and off-street.

      The SUP will enhance community connections, promote recreational opportunities and link gathering spaces in your neighbourhood.

    Calgary downtown protected bike lane

    On Wednesday, September 28, at 1:30pm, Stantec’s technical assessment of a downtown Edmonton bicycle grid will be presented to council’s Urban Planning Committee.

    The report describes a 7.1km network of protected bike lanes, separated from traffic, in downtown Edmonton, connecting a grid of north-south and east-west routes to shared-use paths surrounding downtown. (read more…) »

    Are you properly equipped to cross the road?

    When you step out of your car, do you immediately don your safety vest? When you step out of the office after work, do you flick on the flashlight that you always carry with you?

    Are you properly equipped to cross the road?

    According to the City of Edmonton’s latest “traffic safety” campaign:
    “wearing a strip of reflective material or a reflector can save your life.”
    “pedestrians always come out the losers”
    “If you are lucky, it will only bump you.”

    Zero Vision

    Under the banner of Vision Zero, Edmonton’s “Heads Up” campaign firmly offloads responsibility for pedestrian injuries and fatalities from the City’s poor road designs and dangerous speeds and onto pedestrians themselves. (read more…) »

    Cyclist movements through intersection

    A safety audit of the operation of the High Level Bridge for walking and cycling has just been released. You can view the full report online. There are many good recommendations in this safety report, including:

    • enhancing the barriers between the roadway and the paths (ideally in a way that minimizes splashing from cars, ice build-up, and wind), both on the bridge itself and some of the approaches,
    • better marking hazards,
    • removing barriers such as signs and posts and some redundant fencing,
    • fixing uneven surfaces,
    • installing rub rails,
    • improving lighting,
    • widening the approaches and improving sightlines at intersections

    One-way operation is not supported

    One recommendation that we do not support at this time, however, is the safety audit’s recommendation to make any of the paths one-way. (read more…) »
