A short stretch of 264 Street (Hwy. 13) between 32 Avenue and Fraser Highway is the only portion of that intersection without a proper sidewalk for pedestrians.

Township pushes for new sidewalk and cycling path

The Township has been trying to upgrade the pedestrian sidewalk on 264 Street between 32 Avenue and Fraser Highway

Township Coun. Bob Long says the Township has been trying to upgrade the pedestrian sidewalk on 264 Street between 32 Avenue and Fraser Highway but has been frustrated by the province’s inaction on the issue.

He is hopeful that a plan by the Township will be approved by the province and built this year.

It is the only bare patch of road shoulder on that intersection and has been an issue for residents who find it difficult and even frightening to walk or push a child stroller there.

There are sidewalks on all other corners of the busy highways, providing safe access to the commercial services and bus stops at that intersection.

Long notes that 264 Street (Highway 13) between Fraser Highway and 32 Avenue is the provincial Ministry of Transportation’s jurisdiction.

“The Township has a cycling project on 32 Avenue (between 264 Street and 276 Street) that originally included a shared use trail on the east side of 264 Street between 32 Avenue and Fraser Highway, but MoTI did not approve the work on Highway 13,” said Long.

“Township staff are continuing to discuss with the ministry the works on Highway 13 with the goal of including it as part of the cycling project to be done later this summer.”
