Yeah that is real the problem. If you are downtown or in the older areas of the city, you can get by without a car without to much difficulty, but if you are elsewhere or have to leave that area that is when it becomes problematic. Making changes to this street, will not help with that. Focus people.This is absurd. We're not pedestrianizing the Henday. This is a what, one/two lane road in the middle of at least two others (one of which is literally Jasper Ave)? Like once you get past 105th you're driving through gravel parking lots and a few small buildings until you get to Norquest.
I'm here for the argument that it's not the best candidate for pedestrianizing. 104th, RHW, and 108th may be better. But let's not pretend if it was closed it was some major thoroughfare for cars that would snarl traffic if it went away. This is not the hill to die on imo
