I have a suggestion to this! Not sure if this has been planned or so but here: Convert 97 st from Jasper Ave to 118 ave as one-way northbound traffic then possibly narrowing the lanes down to three. The potential for adding bus/bike lanes and/or wider sidewalks especially for Chinatown. I think the same can be done with 101 St being the southbound traffic still coming from 118 ave to Jasper Ave. We have those roads in the south (Calgary Tr. and Gateway Blvd.) and somewhat over west (Stony Plain Rd and 100 Ave.). And I believe by doing this we can start looking at narrowing down 101 St between Jasper and 103a ave. that’s kinda separating Churchill Sq from the west side because of it. This could also potentially create a superblock right in downtown!We have multiple options for more walkable, bikeable and urban streets in the area and sometimes need a few main arteries to remain primarily vehicular in focus.
