Temporary Sidewalks Part of Calgary’s Effort to Help Pedestrians.

You may have heard of pop-up bike lanes, but a new city initiative is taking things one step further and using metal dividers to create temporary sidewalks in areas that badly need them.

The city calls them adaptive sidewalks. Workers installed barriers, identical to the ones used for the cycle track, in Griffith Woods and 77 Street and 26 Avenue SW this fall, and are already eyeing three or four more spots.

We’ve all had the experience. You’re out strolling the neighbourhood or maybe sitting on your front step on warm summer evening, then suddenly you hear a rumbling sound.
