June Traffic and Safety Update

With summer just around the corner, more residents will be out enjoying our community, walking, riding or driving. Take the time to look out for each other and continue to make Lakeview a safe and inviting community for all users of our paths and roads.

With that in mind, parents please discuss with your children the importance of crossing our main streets at marked crosswalks. In the last few weeks, I have seen numerous school children trying to cross 63 Ave from behind parked cars and from the entrance to alleys. This creates an extremely dangerous situation for everyone involved. Let’s make safety everyone’s priority!

Some other updates:

  • This summer will see the extension of the pathway system along the west side of 37 St SW from the traffic circle to the Weaselhead parking lot. This change will allow cyclists to remain on the pathway and off of 37 St SW. Details to follow as they become available.
  • The City of Calgary is modelling the traffic flow for the new design of the sound wall along Glenmore Trail from Lockinvar Road to Lacombe Way. With the completion of this work and budget approval, construction could proceed by Spring 2025.
  • Two new gender-neutral washrooms are now open in the new Lakeview Pumping Station (east entrance of North Glenmore Park). A new crosswalk will be added (Summer 2024) to allow pedestrians access to this building from the east pathway along the golf course.
  • Two crosswalks in Lakeview will be getting a new sign (see picture below) that reminds drivers to yield to pedestrians in the following crosswalks: 58 Ave & 34th St and 63 Ave & 30 St. These locations were chosen on the basis of being high traffic/pedestrian crosswalks near our community schools.
  • Street sweeping is scheduled for Lakeview on June 12 and 13, so please remember to remove your vehicles from the street on those days between 8am and 4pm. To ensure the street sweeper is able to pick up all the debris on your street, sweep out all the debris approximately 12 inches from the curb in front of your house.
  • For speeding concerns, please contact the Calgary Police Service on their non-emergency line: 403-266-1234 or submit a traffic service request (TSR) on their website.
