Benefits:

+ Improves safety for people who drive through the study area by addressing high traffic collision areas

+ Improves safety for people who walk and bike through the study area by providing additional pathway space, slowing traffic, and reducing crossing distances

+ Improves safety for Montgomery residents by slowing traffic entering and moving through the community

+ Improves traffic flow along Bowness Road/Parkdale Boulevard

+ Improves transit movements through the study area by providing bus queue jump lane

+ Provides opportunity to repurpose areas of land, add gateway features, and make land enhancements in the study area

Trade-offs:

– New signals may create delays for traffic moving from northbound Bowness Road to westbound 16 Avenue at peak times

– Construction of a new ramp will impact trees in the area

– New signals may encourage people who drive to take 44, 45, and/or 46 Street
