2020 Projects

2020 Bicycle Network Improvement Projects

The next phase of development for the City's bicycle network is focused on connecting All Ages and Abilities (AAA) infrastructure in the downtown core to residential neighbourhoods, employment centres, schools, parks, and recreation centres. Corridors that will be improved in 2020 include:

From October 2019 to January 2020, City staff collected public input on preliminary designs for the 2020 projects through online and in person activities. Over 1,000 participants including commuters, residents, and stakeholders provided input, comments, suggestions, and insights. City staff recorded and reviewed all feedback, met with agency partners, undertook further technical analysis, and further refined the designs.

In July 2020, Council approved designs for all four corridors. Several motions were passed to approve the designs including two ammendments to the recomended designs:

  • On Kimta Road, Council directed staff not to implement angled parking on Paul Kane and Cooperage as part of this project
  • On Haultain Street, Council directed staff to explore traffic calming on Fernwood Road as part of this project

To view the staff report, comprehensive desing appendices, and to hear the presentation to Council and subsequent discussion check out the Committee of the Whole Agenda from July 2, 2020.
Attachments can be found under item G2. To view the recommended designs, select Appendix A-F. Approved designs for each corridor are also linked as individual PDFs, where the corridors are listed, above.

The final decisions on design was referred to the Council meeting of July 9 and additional discussion took place during the afternoon (Council to follow COTW) and evening (Council) meetings on that date. Both meeting agendas and archived videos can be found on the Council and Committee meetings page.
