Sidewalks, Bridge Walkways & Pedestrian Crossings Updated
Important changes are in place to allow for physical distancing and other precautions:
- When approaching others on a sidewalk, move into the boulevard or parking lane if safe to do so. If walking in low light, wear bright colours so you can be seen by others more easily.
- Temporary access restrictions and signs are in place on bridge walkways.
- The Traffic, Broadway and University Bridges, with walkways on both sides, are operating as one-way only. The CP Pedestrian bridge has reopened but as a one-way only (access is only available on the east side) because social distancing is not possible. The Sid Buckwold Bridge walkway is operating as a two-way, but pedestrians are asked to cross only when it is empty. Restrictions on all other bridge walkways are found in the frequently asked questions.
- 250 traffic signals have been adjusted so that pedestrians will get the crossing light without having to use their hand to push the activation buttons. Vehicles may notice a slightly longer wait at these high-use pedestrian crossing intersections as a result. Signage is also in place to remind people to not touch the buttons.
