It is very unsafe to turn left onto Miners Avenue from 56th Street East. There's lots of vehicles parked which makes it difficult to see traffic heading Northbound. In the winter, there's many close calls as vehicles slide through this intersection and with there being so many semis in the area, it's extremely risky.

New lane signage for Eastbound Marquis Drive when crossing Idylwyld suggests left turn lane heading northbound plus 2 straight through eastbound lanes. However, there is a left turn lane and only one straight through lane approaching intersection. The potholes and unfinished shoulder should be properly paved and made into an additional lane, properly aligning with the lanes after crossing Idylwyld to the East.

I hope these changes do not make traffic flow worse like what was do to the Warman Road/51st Street intersection. The yield sign at the turn from 51st to Warman Road is backing up traffic far worse than the continuous turn that used to be there. The lanes going north on Warman, especially the turn lanes are way too short and back up traffic for anyone trying to go straight. Please think these changes thru before you make any more substantial changes as it seems that there was not a lot of thought put into these changes and has made things worse rather than better.

The proposed recommendation of removing on street parking from 43rd street to 60th street creating an extra traffic lane in each direction will displace a large number of on street parking to the smaller side roads. With no sidewalks in this industrial area there will be an increase in safety concerns for people attempting to walk down Faithfull Avenue. In winter, the safety concerns will increase. If you are removing street parking please consider putting in sidewalks and having them cleared in winter. Safety should apply to both drivers and pedestrians. You cannot justify making the streets safer for vehicles and by doing so force pedestrians to walk in traffic.

I completely agree with Michele Kowbel's comments. We require parking on Faithfull up to 60th as there are no sidewalks available and this would be a hazard for staff to park anywhere other than on Faithfull.
