Bronson Operational and Safety Review Open House: Display Boards

David Chernushenko has posted the display boards for tonight’s Open House on his website (pdf), which outlines:

  • the study purpose
  • existing conditions
  • issues identified
  • conceptual cross-sections
  • conceptual short-term treatments (on the bridge and at Sunnyside  Ave and Brewer Way)
  • conceptual medium-term treatments
  • next steps

Conceptual short-term treatments include:

  • Shortening the right-turn lane at Findlay Ave on Bronson Ave northbound
  • Installing signage to alert drivers/ pedestrians of cyclists
  • Shortening the southbound right-turn lane on Bronson to Colonel By Drive
  • Improving the visibility of crosswalks at Sunnyside Ave and Bronson Ave
  • Relocating the bus stop on Bronson Ave at Brewer Way farther south, near the lights
  • Installing a pedestrian/ cyclist crossing at Bronson Ave and Brewer Way
  • Installing a push button for cyclists at the intersection of Bronson Ave and Brewer Way (on the Carleton, west side of Bronson)

Conceptual medium-term treatments include:

  • Installing signage
  • Signalized crossing for pedestrians and cyclists north of the gravel path leaving Carleton
  • A bi-directional bike path on the west side of northbound Bronson Ave. This would allow cyclists heading north on the gravel path at Carleton to continue north, cross at the signal (go east), and then continue north, but on the east side of Bronson Ave.
  • Modifying the ramps to Bronson Place and Colonel By Drive

Also see Alex de Vries explanation of the proposed changes with some great diagrams. This explains the major changes proposed.
