Clearview Crosswalk

Of note in councillor Jeff Leiper’s Kitchissippi ward newsletter #238:

Clearview crosswalk forthcoming

After several months of navigating the bureaucracies at the City and NCC, we’ve been informed that the signalized pedestrian crosswalk at Island Park and Clearview being funded as part of the benefits associated with the Mizrahi project is finally set to get underway. Work should begin on that in the next couple of weeks.
