Supporting speed limit reductions in our Great Neighbourhoods

City Council has endorsed the idea of lowering speed limits. While I'm happy with this outcome, we've still got work to do to continue building vibrant, congenial, Great Neighbourhoods.

Here are some of my thoughts on where we are, how we got here and where we go from here.

Thank you all for your support and understanding of this issue. This is a large step in a generational transformation our city. These impacts won't be completed overnight, but we continue moving in the right direction, together.

12 Street SE Bridge - Closure Update

Your Team Ward 9 knows that our neighbours in Inglewood and Ramsay have been tremendously patient with all the construction in and around their communities over the last year, particularly the Zoo Flood Mitigation project and the 12 Street SE Bridge Replacement project.  We are extremely grateful to all of you for your continued patience and understanding. 

We have been working with the 12 Street SE Bridge Replacement project team over the last year to keep the original bridge open for as along as possible. The intent was that it would be used as a pedestrian bridge so that Inglewoodians and Ramsayites could continue to access the other side of the Bow river and Zoo Island. 

Unfortunately,  your Team Ward 9 recently found of that the existing 12 Street SE Bridge will have to be closed as a result of its deteriorating state.  What we know right now is that the original bridge will be removed as early as Spring 2017. We will be continuing to update our neighbours in Inglewood and Ramsay as we learn more about the timelines and impact on our communities.
