New Multi-Use Sidewalks on South Railway Sport Green Markers
Green pavement markers remind everyone to exercise caution
Medicine Hat - As part of the South Railway Street Upgrade project, the City has installed a 3-metre wide multi-use sidewalk on the south side of the road between Kingsway Avenue and bottom of Scholten Hill. The multi-use sidewalk will improve pedestrian and cycling connectivity throughout the City and reflects the City’s Cycling Master Plan.
Along the south side of the road, the City has used bright green pavement markings to highlight areas where this new sidewalk crosses driveways and accesses to the businesses for safe sharing of those areas for all users. These pavement markings are to alert divers and pedestrians/cyclists to navigate with caution on this part of the sidewalk, to avoid potential conflict with vehicle traffic.

The pavement markings are intended to draw drivers' attention so that they do not stop/park their vehicles in those areas.
We hope that everyone safely enjoys the new multi-use sidewalk along with the completed infrastructure upgrades on South Railway Street – South Flats.
