Bowness Road N.W. Complete Streets Project Workshop October 24, 2016
Mon, 24 October 2016, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM MDT
Bowness Road N.W.
Bowness Road N.W., between 70 Street N.W. and Shouldice Bridge, is scheduled for re-paving in 2017. This work presents an opportunity to cost-effectively improve the current road design so it functions better for all road users. Street improvements can enhance vibrancy along the main street and improve the pedestrian and cycling environment, as well as reduce speeding and shortcutting.
In 2015 and 2016, The City met twice with community stakeholders and three times with the Business Revitalization Zone to develop an improvement plan. The public is invited to a workshop to learn about the project and provide feedback on intersection design options, proposed parking changes, pedestrian, pathway and streetscape improvements and bicycle facilities.
Bowwood Drive N.W. and 33 Avenue N.W.
The work on Bowness Road N.W. also provides an opportunity to save costs on adjacent improvements to resolve community concerns. The intersections of Bowwood Drive / 36 Avenue / 64 Street N.W. and Bowwood Drive / 33 Avenue N.W have been identified to be reconfigured to improve safety at these locations. Speed humps are also planned on 33 Avenue N.W. near River Valley School to reduce speeding in the playground zone.
The public is invited to the workshop to provide feedback on intersection design options.
The project team will give a short presentation before beginning small group discussions. Each table will have one technical expert and one facilitator to provide an overview about the project, answer questions and lead discussions. Participants will be asked to fill out a feedback form after each topic is discussed.
Two identical sessions are being offered at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Please RSVP by October 20, 2016 for the session you would like to attend. You can also RSVP by calling 311.
