Humboldt St.

The Humboldt / Pakington street corridor will form the southern edge of the downtown active transportation network and be a shared roadway where traffic calming will reduce vehicle speeds and traffic volumes to increase the level of comfort for people on bikes sharing the roadway with vehicles.

Where vehicle speeds and traffic volumes cannot be reduced to a level of comfort for a shared condition, protected bicycle facilities will be considered as part of the design. This corridor will provide a comfortable and convenient connection from the neighbourhood of Fairfield to Downtown and the rest of the downtown active transportation network.
