The City is building a new network of all ages and abilities cycling infrastructure. The goal is to improve road safety for people on bikes and connect the downtown core with schools, parks, community centres and other destinations. Learn more about upcoming construction projects in 2019.
2019 Projects:The City of Victoria is continuing to make investments in active transportation to improve safety and comfort for people walking and cycling. There are three major projects in 2019 proposed for The City of Victoria: Vancouver Street; Harbour Road; and a Hillside/Quadra connector. Information, proposed designs and engagement opportunities took place in Spring 2019 and were approved by Council in August 2019. Construction on all three projects is expected to start by the end of 2019.
Wharf/Humboldt Corridor: The Wharf/Humboldt protected bike lanes and pedestrian enhancements from the Johnson Street Bridge to the new Douglas/Humboldt plaza opened in August 2019. Two new urban plazas feature new street trees, benches and seating, outdoor table tennis, bike parking, and pedestrian and bicycle crossing enhancements. The opening completes the protected bike lane phase of the Wharf/Humboldt project, with the remainder of the Humboldt Street shared-use cycling facilities scheduled to open this fall.
