I found these links on another website (SSP) so I am not sure how definite they are. http://www.calgary.ca/Transportation...ontext-map.pdf http://www.calgary.ca/_layouts/cocis...f&noredirect=1 It looks like the city is going to address the "bike lanes to nowhere" that begin and end on 9th Ave SE at 6th St. There is now a proposed continuation of the lanes from 6th St E to the bridge over the Elbow river. So far so good, it looks like there will be a loss of the right most east bound traffic lane that exited to 7th St SE southbound to the bus barns. Where I am starting to have concerns is that it appears that the sidewalks on both the north side and the south side of the bridge are to be used as part of the bike way for E/W traffic on 9th Ave. Bike ramps are shown to jump up onto the side walk from the terminating bike lane at the bridge in both directions. I dislike this as there are tons of pedestrians on the north side sidewalk usually and it leads to a big slow down and interactions. The bike ramp on the west bound lane is just in front of the Deane House and right before an essentially blind corner (due to trees) where the MUP comes to the bridge. If you are going street speed it is going to require a huge slow down to cross the bridge safely per this proposed arrangement. The transition off the bridge into the new bike lane in front of Ft Calgary on the west bound route looks reasonable, but again you could be interacting with east bound pedestrian traffic as you cross their path. The transition off the east bound route over the bridge is a mystery to me. It looks like they bring the pathway to the corner of 8th St. Not an ideal place to rejoin traffic flow as you risk being hit by traffic turning right onto south bound 8th St SE. Another area where there could be difficulty is the right turn from 7th St SE to eastbound 9th. This has poor sightlines as it is and I forsee drivers having to nose out in the bike lane to see if they can make a safe turn. The other wild card in all of this is potential addition of a new pathway bridge over the Elbow where it meets the Bow, essentially tying the MUP at Ft Calgary (and Riverwalk) to the Inglewood MUP. Hopefully this would take some of pressure off this proposed 9th Ave route and take some of the slower bike/ped traffic onto it's own river crossing. The 9th Ave bridge is a choke point for all traffic into Inglewood and beyond on the 9th Ave corridor. I understand what the city is trying to achieve with these changes and it would be ideal to have a E/W express of bike lanes on this corridor into and out of downtown. I just have reservations about using the sidewalks on the bridge to achieve this. But the alternative of losing one of the three traffic lanes on the bridge to create new bike lanes would probably cause an even bigger uproar than the new bike/bus lanes through Inglewood. Sorry for the long exposition, just a topic near and dear to my heart.
