This small section of 10th Ave has a significant amount of vehicle traffic, especially to and from the Safeway at Commercial Dr. With no traffic signal at 10th Ave and Victoria Dr, crossing Victoria Dr by foot or bike can be challenging. This is a particular concern for the nearby Laura Secord Elementary school.
Construction improvements to this segment of 10th Ave were completed in June 2019. Longer term solutions for improvement to 10th Ave between Commercial Dr and Victoria Dr will be identified through redevelopment opportunities within the area.
Upgrade 10th Ave so it is safe and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities

Accommodate the loading and access needs of adjacent businesses
Preserve as much of the street’s healthy and mature tree canopy as possible
Ensure residents on 10th Ave can continue to park within a reasonable walking distance of home
