13. Braid Street & Brunette Avenue

Primarily operated by: CN & BNSF
Number of tracks at crossing: 4
Safety audit complete: Yes
Design complete: No
Construction status:  TBD
Whistle cessation process: Step 2

Comments: A number of complex safety issues were identified in the safety audit for this crossing as there are multiple tracks which involve shunting operations. Similar to the CP crossing, high traffic volumes cause traffic to que across these tracks. Solutions to these issues are being looked at in conjunction with possible major highway improvements as part of the future Brunette Interchange.

CN is expected to replace the rail crossing surface when the City completes the final phase of the Braid Street Greenway.
