3 Avenue South Walking and Wheeling Upgrades Project

Michelle Mak Community, Daily Life, Newcomer Information

The 3 Avenue South Walking and Wheeling Upgrades Project is a project done by City of Calgary. It aims to make it easier to walk and wheel along the corridor while providing vital East and West connections to our existing network.

The upgrades being made for people who walk and wheel in the area include:

  • Improvements at intersections that enhance safety and make it easier to cross the street
  • The possible installation of signals (where appropriate) to enhance pedestrian safety and accessibility
  • Wheelchair ramp reconstruction and accessibility improvements
  • Traffic calming measures
  • Changes to on-street parking, including curb extensions or concrete islands that will improve the visibility of people at intersections
  • Creating angle parking stalls where appropriate on side streets to increase parking capacity
  • Creating dedicated facilities for cycling and other mobility devices such as scooters, in-line skates, and skateboards

The City of Calgary has included some concepts and ideas of how they will implement this project but are asking for feedback. If you would like to have your voice heard, visit https://engage.calgary.ca/3avenue?fbclid=IwAR3q7GoTU2GHzIXFRoaf8MkaSGbIJiCJSNJVNaM5UsUNVO22j4okVJxF2w8
