Kirwood Avenue redesign

 

On December 2, at 7pm I will be hosting a public consultation/information session on proposed changes to Kirkwood Avenue. A flyer is currently being delivered east and west of Kirkwood Avenue.

The public meeting will provide an overview of a plan to decrease the travel lanes on Kirkwood from 4 to 2 and use the surplus space to create bike lanes in each direction. It is proposed to also include a middle turning lane.

Please register your attendance for public meeting at: https://tinyurl.com/2undyta8
