Some of you will have already seen this, but for those who are not aware:
Starting on January 5, 2016 for a period of up to six weeks, the travel lanes on 5 Street S.W. between 7 Avenue and 8 Avenue will be narrowed and the cycle track will be closed. During the closure people riding bicycles will be allowed to share the sidewalk on the east side of 5 Street. Cyclists are asked to be patient, ride courteously, follow signage and yield to pedestrians if using the sidewalk during the cycle track closure. This closure accommodates underground utility work.
The City of Calgary will be hosting a public open house on the above project on Thursday, January 28, 2016 at the East Hills Walmart (255 East Hills Blvd. S.E.) from 4 – 8 p.m. If you are unable to attend, but want to provide feedback, please do so online from January 29 – February 12, 2016.
Join Bike Calgary and members within Community Wise to celebrate the Winter Season and the end of 2015! Our friends in Community Wise will be hosting a talent show and potluck. Bring your favourite musical instrument and some food and see the amazing community spirit alive with the partners of CommunityWise. Arusha / Open Streets will also have their doors open, so you can stop and chat with them and see what they are up to. And Bike Calgary will have our office upstairs open with some snacks. Come see what we have been up to in 2015, and what we are planning for 2016!
