Town of Creston Multi-Modal Transportation Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Planning for great connectivity and mobility starts now!

The Town of Creston is dedicated to evolving our transportation network. During our Official Community Plan outreach and other recent planning, the community expressed some clear goals for what our transportation network might look like and what that would mean for Creston.

We know that safety, accessibility, and ease all matter. So does maintaining and developing our transportation network in ways that are more socially, financially, and environmentally sustainable.

We have now started reaching out to community members to start work on a new Multi-Modal Transportation Plan (MMTP). Transportation planning will offer us a unique opportunity to improve local quality of life, cultivate Creston’s small town character, contribute to our economic prosperity, and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

We are collaborating with community members and partners to identify quick wins and priority actions that could be considered in the shorter term. We will also be mapping a longer-term vision for our transportation network to support the Town’s sustainability and success into the future.


We want your ideas for enhancing connectivity and mobility!

We are now engaging residents, visitors, and community groups to assess current transportation conditions and plan for the future. Please participate in the survey below! NOTE: THIS SURVEY HAS NOW CLOSED

Our hope is to better understand how you currently experience getting to, from, and around Town – whether by walking, rolling, cycling, transit, or vehicle. We also want to work with the community to develop “made in Creston” solutions for enhancing that experience. Parking and goods movement are also topics for us to explore.

    It would be awesome to have connection to Canyon and Lister from Erickson, without having to go all the way to Mountain Park Resort or 40th on Hwy 21. Having a bike bridge would be awesome over the Goat River. Having a bridge for vehicles would be cool too, but mainly interested in just a bike/pedestrian bridge to promote biking and walking.

    This is series of questions. 1. In new sub -divisions are provisions beingmade to have pass through walkways from street to street and from street to wild areas that are behind the houses? Why is this important? Modern design of subdivisions has circles, bays etc. that limit traffic by limiting the number of houses on a street. This has the effect of making walking from one place to another a much longer distance, pass throughs alleviate this. Also when a street borders on wild areas like goat mtn and the community forest pass throughs would allow the general public to access the community forest lands. 2. Are there plans for sidewalks from the Ramada to Erickson school? I know not all of this is in the town but it’s time to stop forcing people to walk on the side of the highway.

    Thank you for your comments. Your first question ties very nicely to active transportation and these types of comments are needed to provide community direction on Creston’s Multi-modal Transportation Plan. Q1 will also be forwarded to Creston's Planning Department to ensure that future subdivision layout are considered with this in mind.  

    Having a sidewalk along Northwest Boulevard, between the Ramada and the Creston Mall, has long been a priority for Town Council but has been viewed as cost prohibitive with the added complexity of being adjacent to a provincial highway, not under the control of the Town.  Hopefully, Creston’s Multi-modal Transportation Plan will provide our community with the political justification necessary to lobby for improved pedestrian access along this busy corridor.  Thank you!

    Why, after all the upgrades to signage/ crosswalk DQ to high school, did you not install a button to activate a flashing light warning ( like one near ARES)? Often vehicles coming from the east are going at a good speed and do not stop...even when a group are waiting to cross.

    AM asked 11 days ago

    Thank you for your comment.  The illuminated crosswalks along Canyon Street (Hwy 3) at DQ and Pauls Superette were installed by Province of BC, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.  Your concerns will be forwarded to the Province.  Thank you.

    I use a scooter to get around town and would like to address the challenge of navigating some sidewalks. The curved corners of the new sidewalks are great for turning snow ploughs and cars, but can cause a scooter or wheelchair to tip to the side, not being able to approach the corner straight on. …unless I put myself out. In the oncoming traffic. It’s very scary. Crestbrook Gardens, 200 11th Ave. S. , is a community of people with various disabilities.. If the Creston Community bus made this a part of the regular route we would not feel so isolated and restricted to timed pick up and drop off by Handy Dart. The road surface of Railway or (Biker) Blvd. Is in such bad condition that there is only one lane of pavement that is not an obstacle course of potholes and uneven patches of pavement. This a busy connector road between 11 th. Ave. S. and the junction heading up hill to the lights at NW Blvd. There are many more dangers about town for those of us needing to travel by scooter. Don’t want to overwhelm you. Thanks for your interest.

    People all day long speed over the posted speed limit along 10 avenue, which makes it all the more dangerous trying to walk along this avenue since there is no sidewalks; and with it being steep, makes it all the more challenging for people that are not 100% able. The stop signs at the bottom of 10 Ave is ignored by the majority of drivers, we avoid crossing the street at that intersection. Having Red Stop signs posted really means Yield in all directions. Drivers act that they have the right-of-way over pedestrians. It is time to install REAL speed bumps in both directions to force drivers to slow down and actually stop at the stop signs!

    Nadia asked 10 days ago

    Your comments have been heard.  10th Avenue North, between Regina and Cavell Streets, is one area of the Town that we are looking to Creston’s Multi-modal Transportation Plan to provide recommendations that benefit the entire community. Thank you!

    Please make crossing anywhere along the very busy 10th avenue between Regina to Cavell street safer for pedestrians, dog walkers, kids, seniors, and mostly for people that are handicap.... The amount of traffic during the day is insane and an accident waiting to happen!

    Thank you very much for this feedback.

    I would like to see more walking paths and the bus to go to a longer time.

    Are their any plans to connect Hawkview Estates to the rest of Creston via multi-modal transportation? There are lots of kids on bikes, dog walkers and seniors trying to keep fit. Currently no sidewalks or bike paths just busy highways and as the subdivision fills in we may lose easy access to Kootnenay River Road.

    Your comments about limited accessibility beyond Hawkview Estates has been heard. Recommendations that come out of Creston’s Multi-Modal Transportation Plan (MMTP) will be driven by feedback from the community. 
     
    Please be advised that there will be a survey available on Let’s Talk Creston in the next week or two.  I encourage you to complete this survey as it will help us to better understand how you currently experience getting to, from, and around Town – whether by walking, rolling, cycling, transit, or vehicle.

    We need more bike racks!!! especially in the park areas and downtown. Designated bike routes. Lets make Creston bike friendly. Currently IT IS NOT!
