RE: Moving Alma crosswalk?

Hi John,

Thanks for your email. Relocating the crosswalk at Ravenswood and Alma is not part of the staff recommendation tonight. The recommendation includes installing a temporary median to eliminate left-turns and the eastbound right-turn from Ravenswood to Alma on a 6-month trial basis, but to leave the crosswalk in place. If approved, during the trial, we would continue to monitor how the intersection is used - number of pedestrians, vehicle yielding rates, and whether vehicle queuing back to the rail crossing has been improved with the changes.

Following the trial, staff would a report back to the Council, and at that time additional improvements could be evaluated. These may include installing a traffic signal, relocating the crosswalk, or restoring the current condition - or others that may come to light in evaluating the trial modifications.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Dear Council -
  My understanding is that you may consider moving the Alma crosswalk at Ravenswood up to Noel. I'm sceptical that this location would prove useful, and would in addition remove one of the most useful and highly used pedestrian and bike amenities in the Downtown area. I'm all for safety improvement in this area , but not by reducing pedestrian and bike safety and access that's now there.
