Call Out to Cyclists and Pedestrians:
Bronson Operational and Safety Review Open House
Date: February 27, 2013
Location: The Atrium, 4th floor of the University Centre
In conjunction with the Graduate Students’ Association and C.U. Cycling, the City of Ottawa will be holding an Open House for all students, staff, faculty, alumni, and neighbours. The Bronson Operational and Safety Review Open House will outline the City of Ottawa’s list of recommendations brought forward by staff in collaboration with the community and Councilor David Chernushenko.
All the members of Carleton University and the surrounding area are invited to see the upcoming developments for Bronson Avenue between Brewer Way and Holmwood Avenue.
There will be display boards set up to show the proposed changes to Bronson Avenue and city staff, GSA representatives, and C.U. Cycling representatives will be available to talk to residents one-on-one. The open house is an opportunity to provide your final input on the recommendations before city staff deliver the report to the Transportation Committee in late April.
Some of the options being considered include:
- a new traffic signal at the canal,
- bigger signage,
- better paint markings at the Brewer intersection, and
- creating a buffer zone between cyclists and motorists.
Currently, cyclists and pedestrians share the sidewalk over the bridge. This is a stopgap measure until there is a safer way to cross.
You can see some of the proposed changes listed on Citizen Cycle.
Please spread the word and let your friends and colleagues know! It will be a great event if you want to learn more about how the community and the city are working to make Bronson Avenue safer.
You can join the Facebook event so that we have an idea of how many people will be attending or just for fun! Hope to see you there!
