Current Project Details:
Construction on Vancouver, Graham-Jackson and Harbour Road
Construction is now underway on the Vancouver Street, Graham-Jackson, and Harbour Road corridors. These projects represent a significant step in the growth of the City’s AAA cycling network. Once complete, these corridors will add ~4.8kms to the network, more than doubling its current size, extending to city limits and providing connections from the downtown core network to several neighbourhoods and to neighbouring municipalities. Work on all corridors is expected to be complete in Spring 2021.

Road safety improvements will be coming to four more corridors, adding ~8kms to the growing network and getting closer to completion of the City's priority AAA netowrk. Construction on these corridors is expected to start in Summer 2021.
