Great news for cyclists and pedestrians who access the 5th Av NW corridor. This summer, new bike lanes will be constructed on 5 Avenue N.W., between 10 Street N.W. and 14 Street N.W., to connect to the existing bike lanes on 10 Street N.W. and 6 Avenue N.W. A new crosswalk and four curb extensions will also be installed along the corridor to improve pedestrian safety and comfort and calm traffic. East of the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community, on-street parking will be moved to the south side of the street to accommodate the mobility improvements.
Concrete work to build the curb extensions is expected to begin in early May and will take approximately six weeks. Some temporary sidewalk closures will be required for this construction. Roadmarking and signage changes will happen after the concrete work is complete, and this is when parking changes will be implemented (expected by the end of June, weather permitting).
