Please be advised, beginning November 6th and extending until Spring, 2018, the City will be closing the pathway bridge beneath Crowchild Trail to accommodate work on Crowchild Trail as part of the short-term Crowchild Trail Corridor upgrades (http://www.calgary.ca/crowchild).
Please note that the dam deck crossing over the Glenmore Reservoir will be closed from September 30, 2017 to spring 2020 for dam deck redesign and rehabilitation, meaning that the associated pathway will be inaccessible during this time. The City has posted the following as the recommended pathway detour:
The City of Calgary is establishing pathway detours for Phase 2 of construction through the Eau Claire area as part of West Eau Claire Park (www.calgary.ca/westeauclaire) starting Tuesday, September 5th and going to the end of the year. The City is asking that, ‘given the limited space for travel and the high volumes of people walking through the area, people cycling use alternate routes around the construction site’. Suggested detours are outlined on the map below;
Bike Calgary and the City of Calgary have created an education campaign to reduce bike theft by improving bike lock-up behaviors. While leading a bike theft task force, Darren Mazzei, the Vice-President of Bike Calgary, had the idea to create a graphic sticker depicting bike locking techniques and decal city-owned bike racks. Mazzei approached the City of Calgary to bring the idea to reality and three months later 1000 stickers have been printed and are ready to be installed.
The simple graphic depicts three possible ways to lock your bicycle and a website link to get additional information. Local artist, Tyler Lemermeyer, produced the illustrations, Bike Calgary volunteers designed the sticker and City of Calgary Roads Maintenance provided permission to put the stickers on the bike racks. “The project came to together very smoothly. The City said yes to put the stickers on the racks and I think Tyler made some beautiful illustrations,” stated Mazzei.
