2 VotesFix it! Voted!84 Avenue Grande Prairie, Alberta
Street Sweeping HAS NEVER BEEN DONE at this intersection where the trucks come out of CANFOR. It is thick with compact dirt and mud....when it begins to snow or rain it becomes very slick for drivers in both lanes going west on 84th avenue. How safe is this? Using the excuse now that the sweepers are put away for the winter does not work. Then get the boys out there with shovels and clean the mess up. It is not the first time this has been reported. Hoping to have this cleaned up soon. Not next spring: Also along with cleaning, the trails along Wapiti Road from 84th ave South to 68th ave at any of the intersections there is STILL MUD compact one who is in a wheelchair, strollers, bikes, walkers, runners, anyone using these trails has to dodge the build up of this mess. It is obvious that when they were built the drainage was not considered as it just sits in puddles. Again, not the first time this has been reported. And why? should one have to carry a camera with them to take pictures of this. Should the city not be doing an inspection of what the streets look like throught the year and seasons? hmmm Again, hopefully this is cleared up soon.

At this intersection, on 108th street & 79 Avenue at the MacDonalds corner, it HAS YET to be CLEANED of dry MUD, dirt, gravel. and when it rains or snows it all collects at the sidewalk corner, how horrible for anyone with a wheelchair, stroller, walking, running, biking, to have to TRY to go around this mess. It has always been a buildup since they redid the road/trails. Please get it cleaned and fixed so it drains properly. We use these trails all the time and it is not right that as taxpayers we have to jump puddles into a muddy ( supposed to be grassed curb area.
108 Street --- Grande Prairie, Alberta
Can you explain to all the tax-payers in Grande Prairie, why the trail system along 108 street ( Wapiti Road ) and 84 avenue is not yet cleaned considering the snowfall was one full week ago? And again, why at the exit of Mission Heights Drive and 84th avenue has a snow berm covering the left hand turning lane (to go West ) is covered with a pile of snow, so there is not enough room for two vehicles. People have to drive up on the sidewalk to turn right or block traffic altogether. It is also a very icy exit as it has a decline in the road. We should not have to wait til they take the whole berm away to have this cleared. They did clear the berm where the city bus turns off of Michaelis Boulevard onto Mission Heights, surely the can clean it at the 84th / MHDrive intersection.

On Mission Heights Drive in this area and along Kateri Drive also it is a big problem. Not really a storm sewer drainage but it is a DRAINAGE PROBLEM from SUMP PUMPS being EMPTIED out onto the sidewalks. That causes huge areas of ice in the winter, and unnecessary water drainage also when it should be drained into residents YARDS not onto the walking areas. We were to the understanding that these pipes from the homes were NOT TO DRAIN onto the public walking/driving areas.
ALSO.....NOT very many people cleaned their sidewalks after this snowfall. Hmmmm --- by law is it not! to clean them

Snow removal DOWNTOWN on a Saturday? Why was it that majority of it was not cleaned off .
BYLAW is it not. This problem has occured all winter. Whether it be a Saturday/Sunday/ Wednesday. Sidewalks should be cleaned every morning.

I completed my run this morning around crystal lake area and the trails there were perfect! I noticed many seniors out for their walks. Its great when these trails are kept in good condition so people can still get out on such a beautiful day. They were plowing crystal lake drive and did an amazing job...thank you.
Canfor Hauling Road Grande Prairie, Alberta
The NEW TRAIL alongside of the Canfor Haul road is the issue here. Great finally a trail but, they 'neglected' to add a piece of the trail that leads onto the trail at 68th ave. People are forced to walk across the dirt/seeded grass? section there. When they had the equipment WHY did they not do it. They had done the same thing at the lights on HWY 40 and Kateri Drive last year. then had to come back and put a piece in. Does not make sense and a waste of good time. Also, along these trails, why are the walkways NOT CLEANED in the sloped sections at the crosswalks. They have always been filled with dirt/mud/water, snow/ice since they put these trails in. How is a person who is with a stroller, walker, wheelchair, bicycle, walker/runner to get through this. Then one has to step out of the crosswalk zone or go down a high curb.
Glad to see they are finally putting a trail alongside Canfor to the railway tracks, and hopefully they extend it to 84th ave so one does not have to do so much crossing at the lights.
116th Ave And Copperwood Road Grande Prairie, Alberta
Melting snow is running onto intersection. Some mornings it is an icy mess on the road, other mornings it is simply a river running across the road. There appears to be no drainage pipe in the ditch to take away the melting runoff.
