Ladysmith Drive and Kiwanis Street – Curb Extensions and Crosswalk

In response to community requests for a crosswalk along Ladysmith Drive, this pilot will trial a crosswalk enhanced with curb extensions created using traffic control islands to determine the potential demand for a marked crossing at this location.

The diagram illustrates the proposed pilot implementation plan. Past studies have indicated that a crosswalk is not warranted but feedback from the community has indicated that it would be used if available. This project will test this “if you build it they will come” premise.

Implementation Rating: Simple


Thanks to all who participated in our survey. The results of the survey along with technical and observation data will be shared with City Council to inform the evaluation and recommendation on whether the projects should be made permanent.
