2nd Street SW Cycle Tracks – Info Session

Date: Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Time: 5:30PM to 8:30PM
Location: Cliff Bungalow-Mission Community Association
2201 Cliff Street Calgary, AB

The City of Calgary is hosting an information session to share the final design for the 2nd Street SW Complete Street Project. Construction is planned for Spring/Summer of 2020 for protected cycling infrastructure that will upgrade an important connection between the Elbow River Pathway and the 12 Ave SW cycle track.

Come out to show your support for this project and for the City’s continued investment in active modes. With political uncertainty around budget cuts, we can remind City administration and staff that relatively small investments in cycling and walking can help the City and Province save money by reducing traffic congestion, improving air quality, and supporting physical and mental health!

The final design includes the following improvements for people cycling, rolling, and walking. Check out this link for more details on the City’s website:

  • Separated cycle track on the east and west sides of 2nd Street from 26th Ave to 10th Ave SW
  • New curb extensions to reduce pedestrian crossing distance and increase visibility at seven intersections
  • Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at three intersections

Stop by and ask questions, share your thoughts on the design, and support safe transportation options in Mission and the Beltline. Bike Calgary is excited for these improvements to our inner-city cycling network and wants to support the City as they continue towards construction.

    This option looks much better to me than some of the previous proposals. I ride second street a lot and while it’s mostly nice to ride there are a few pinch points which take a more assertive approach to ride safely. I think this will be heavily used by those who prefer the safer feeling of a separated bike lane.
