Cook St.

Cook Street is a key north-south connection in the downtown active-transportation network that will provide protected bike lanes on each side of Cook Street to connect the east-west cycling corridors on Pandora Avenue, Fort Street and the Humboldt Valley.

The corridor will connect the Pandora Avenue and Fort Street protected bike lanes with one way protected bike lanes on each side of the street. The protected bike lanes will connect the communities of North Park, Harris Green, Fernwood and Fairfield and provide a comfortable and convenient connection to the edge of the North Park and Cook Street Urban Villages.
