Two new resources, produced by TCAT volunteers Sam Schachar and Erin Toop, are now available on the Complete Streets for Canada website. These examples were developed to show what Complete Streets could look like in different community contexts in different parts of Canada.
The first example is 102 Street, in the City of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The conditions before and after a recent road reconstruction project are described, showing how a Complete Streets approach has improved the street for all road users.
The second example is Celebrate Yonge, where four lanes were temporarily reduced to two, making room for enhanced public space on Toronto’s original main street and home to one of Canada’s busiest intersections, with over 100,000 pedestrians daily.
