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: Preferred design concept approved by Council

DESIGN: 1km of traffic calmed shared use streets east of Douglas Street to Cook Street and a 200 metre two-way protected bike lane from Government Street to Douglas Street is planned for this corridor.
