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.

STATUS: Early consultation and development of emerging concepts.  Construction planned for 2018.

DESIGN: 1km traffic calmed shared use streets east of Douglas Street to Cook Street and and 200 m two-way protected bike lane from Government Street to Douglas Street

NEXT STEPS: Consultation activities throughout 2017 to inform design followed by City Council's consideration and approval of a preferred design concept

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.

Upcoming Engagement

City staff are notifying stakeholders along the corridor to ensure they are aware of the upcoming project and the upcoming opportunities to provide input at different stages of the design process. Join us at future consultation events to let us know what is important to you when it comes to transportation decisions.
