About the project

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback the survey is now closed.

The City of Calgary is upgrading the existing bikeway along 2 Street S.W. between 26 Avenue to 10 Avenue S.W. With more people cycling on this road, an upgraded bikeway will provide a safer, more defined route, while connecting to the river pathway and downtown network.

The project will also include traffic calming and safer pedestrian crossings. Some parking changes are anticipated, but those changes will still allow for smooth and predictable traffic flow.

Stay up to date with the 2 Street Complete Street project at http://calgary.ca/2ndstreet. The display boards for the in-person events can be found here.

In June, we provided in-person and online engagement opportunities. Participants were asked to provide feedback on curb extension locations, lowering the speed limit on 2 Street S.W. to 40km/h and the conversion of on-street parking that would be moved from 2 Street S.W. to 24 Avenue to free parking. The feedback we received is in this What We Heard report.

We heard that:

  • There is wide support for traffic calming on 2 Street S.W. including enhancing pedestrian crossings and lowering the speed limit to 40 km/ hr.
  • On-street parking is important to people living and travelling through the area
  • There is also support for more separation for people cycling from people driving and that a street design that is similar to others in Centre City is desired

Past Engagement

The engagement will ask survey participants to choose their top choices for curb extensions along 2nd St. The survey is also looking at potentially reducing the speed limit along 2nd St as well as what the preference is for the new free parking along 24th
Choose your top four (4) locations for a curb extension at 2nd St SW and:
Would you support a speed limit reduction from 50km/h to 40km/h along 2nd St SW?
Would you like the paid parking zone on 24th Ave to be converted to a '2 hr' or 'all day' free parking zone?

The survey form is now closed. Thanks for your contributions.

Next Steps

After reviewing the feedback, we are delaying construction work until 2019 while we continue pursuing additional street designs that address what we heard. In the fall, we will host a second phase of engagement to provide the community with an opportunity to share their input on revised roadway designs.
