As a MacEwan student, this street can be quite hostile to not only pedestrians, but the quality of the road is in such poor condition. I've had more than my fair share of potholes busting up my tires and feeling like I am going to hit another vehicle coming down the opposite way. It doesn't help as well when trying to exit onto that road there is an absurd amount of street parking on an already tight road that cars cram as close to each other as possible, reducing one's ability to see any oncoming traffic whatsoever. Cars park right up to the entrance/exit points. MacEwan in general I think has an overabundance of parking, but it's quite expensive. Therefore, a lot of people use the cheaper street parking which falls under the city's responsibility. Hopefully when the new Valley West line is built, this will reduce the need for parking at MacEwan and thus make 105 Ave more pedestrian friendly. I've seen people walking in the bike lanes and in mud due to a lack of sidewalks right now, and I think if there were proper sidewalks and a more pedestrian friendly street (along with more of the development of apartments and retail) it can become quite a popular and lively street. But as of right now, no one really wants to walk nor spend time there.
