ABOUT THE PROJECT

The City is developing a Streetscape Master Plan for 33 and 34 Avenues S.W., as part of the Main Streets initiative’s investment phase. A streetscape includes all visual and functional elements of a street that collectively form its character. Some areas we are exploring include:

  • Sidewalk features (e.g. street trees, patios, street furniture)
  • Crosswalks and street corner configurations
  • Laneway and park connectivity
  • Street lighting
  • Pedestrian safety features

We are producing a detailed plan that provides a blueprint to rebuild 33 and 34 Avenues S.W. in a way that meets the needs of current and future residents, visitors and business owners.

Phase 2 Streetscape Design Priorities

Pedestrian Comfort and Enhanced Landscape: Establishing a vibrant streetscape through enhanced landscaping, repeated elements and design styles.

Parking: Establishing clearly defined parking zones to help prioritize the parking within the corridor.

Public Transit and Automobiles: Upgrades to public transit stops and locations are being explored to improve the riders’ experience. Travel lanes will be maintained at the current spacing to curb line to create a consistent travel experience throughout the corridor.

Bicycles: Bicycle amenities will be considered; however, the pedestrian and parking experience will be a priority as bicycle amenities are explored.

Goods / Services: Large vehicle pick up and drop off will be facilitated through lane access not at curb side.
