Tada!

The IPD-Clearview crosswalk is up and running. Great to see cars stopping for kids crossing IPD to get to school this morning.

Many thanks to Geoff/Tom, City staff, the NCC and many others who helped make it happen, including Sam Mizrahi who agreed to pay for it all.

Clearview and Island Park Drive Traffic Light News Update

Traffic cones and other orange coloured things (not pumpkins!) are going up around the Island Park Drive and Clearview Avenue intersection. Could it be that the traffic light is being installed? Here’s the view from this morning, with some more traffic control equipment trucks arriving moments later, perhaps to add more traffic detour barrels.

IPD/Clearview pedestrian crossing

My most recent understanding of when the IPD/Clearview pedestrian crossing will go in is that the contractor is now ready and that they are waiting for a road cut permit. My office is advocating for an expedition of that. We’ll see.

IPD/Clearview pedestrian crossing

I’ve been fielding a few questions about when the signalized pedestrian crossing is expected to be completed. It’s a very good question. We’ve been given multiple dates by the City that have all fallen through. I’ve raised my concern over the length of time it’s taking to accomplish this with senior staff and the latest timeframe we’ve been given is from mid- to the end-of-October. I’m treating that with a grain of salt. What we do know is that there’s a finalized work order in place, but that materials are apparently on back order. The crossing is coming. I just don’t know when.

IPD/Clearview pedestrian crossing

With my apologies, I learned last week that the planned pedestrian crossing at Island Park Drive and Clearview will likely not be completed now until October. The schedule I’d previously been given saw it completed by Labour Day. It’s been asserted to me that some required parts are on back-order, which has not been uncommon due to the pandemic. I have expressed my extreme disappointment to our City Manager both at the lack of notice and further delay in this project, and the City is exploring ways to try to accelerate completion.

Island Park/Clearview crossing

Last year, we’d been told that construction of the pedestrian crossing at Island Park Drive and Clearview was proceeding, but then the work was paused apparently because of covid-related supplier issues. Indications to my staff are now that work should proceed in May. We’re all impatient for that and I appreciate your patience.
