I attended the North Hill Traffic Study open house tonight. (It is still going on as I type.) The plan covers an area bounded by 16th Ave on the south, 32nd Ave/Confederation Park on the north, and by 19th St in the west to Edmonton Trail in the East.
There are a number of traffic calming measures being proposed for the area, speed humps, curb extensions, traffic circles, "limit your speed" signs and the like. All seem sensible as traffic can always use more calming. A big complaint in the area is drivers "cutting through" residential areas and people speeding down residential streets. (I live on a corner and the speed of some of the traffic is scary, especially since the road ends a block later!).
There is a bike lane proposed on 10th St/Cambrian Drive. It would start at 23 Ave and go North to Cambrian and Northmount.
Phase II of this would connect it up with the work being done around U of C. This would be a full on bike lane. A bike-way would be designated along 21 Ave, and 24th Ave. Some pathways and stuff would be added in that gravel area to connect the lanes on 10th to 21 Ave.
I was quite pleased to see this. Of course it would have been even better to continue the bike lane south on 10th Street, all the way to Kensington, but one thing at a time. 21 Ave is already a decent route as traffic is fairly light. It is a bus route and bus/bike encounters never seem to be pleasant, but the bus along there is a community bus, the 404, and seeing one is rare. The only problem with 21 Ave is the crossing at 14th St. It can be a pain during high traffic times.
