I was just thinking about this Active Living Corridor a bit more. The plan is to build some sort of switchback ramp at the top of Cornwall Street to provide universal access to the Hillcrest Park from below. The Active Corridor starts across High Street from that park on upper Bay Street.
So how will pedestrians and cyclists cross High Street in the required safe, convenient and comfortable way? Run?
I have to believe that there will be some sort of pedestrian crosswalk installed with lights etc. at the intersection of High Street and Bay Street.
If the goal is to have the Active Living Corridor start down at the waterfront then it will have to cross High Street somewhere. With Bay Street chosen as the corridor location, then Bay and High is the obvious intersection to do so.
What will the Thunder Bay driving public think about traffic lights at that intersection? I suspect they will not be impressed as High Street is a major north/south traffic artery.
The City of Thunder Bay hates traffic lights. It should be interesting to see what happens.
Thunder Bay is a pedestrian crosswalk desert.
