Apr 23, 2018 Chad Chudyk - talked to caller then sent email as requested; Hi Agustin; As we discussed on the phone this crosswalk won't qualify for a marked crosswalk with signs and lines. The reason is the distance to the traffic lights. Our policy says no marked crosswalks are warranted less than 200m from a traffic signal and this location is about 90m away; Some reasons for this policy are:; - Traffic lights require more diver attention and they may miss signs or people waiting to cross; - We want to encourage people to use the lights to cross as they are the safest option; - Installing un-warranted crosswalks may increase pedestrian confidence without increasing safety; Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or I missed something; Chad; Chad Chudyk C.E.T; Traffic Engineering Technician; Parking Traffic Assessment, Traffic, ROADS; The City of Calgary | Mail Code: #4009; T: 403.268.1592 | F: 403.268.4635 | calgary.ca; PO Box 2100, Station M Calgary, Alberta T2P 2M5.|
