    Final hours for a #yeg landmark on 102ave. Harbin Gate to start coming down this week. 102ave down to 1 lane. #yegtraffic

    Harbin Gate will soon be removed for #yeg Valley Line LRT. The Gate may be re-erected but plans for when/where not announced. @ctvedmonton
    Wanted to have this as a separate discussion from the SE LRT thread.

    What to do with this lovely Harbin Gate?
    I always thought it made sense to relocate it to 97 St, either at 101A Ave, or at 105 Ave.

    Thoughts?

    Still very disappointed it was not incorporated. There is some discussion to place it over 97st north of Jasper, expanded of course.

    Is there no way to have LRT run through it?

    if it were up to me, 96th street (the armature) would be extended north and the pedestrian link extended across the lrt right of way through mary burley park to 97th street. the gate would be over the pedestrian link in a position of prominence, not overshadowed by canada place etc. done right it would provide a pedestrian friendly fine grained connection between north and south chinatown that is no longer possible using 97th street.

    Why not send out questionnaires to the business owners along that stretch of 97th. Street and maybe they may have some ideas on where the gate should go.
    Gone............................and very quickly forgotten may I add.

    Well underway... the Chinese Business Assoc. and other groups are working on this with the COE.

    ^^^bad vibrations apparently killed it at that location.
