On Monday, April 28th, City Council approved the Centre City Cycle Track Network pilot that was recommended - minus 1st Street SE. The decision to remove 1 Street S.E., alson gwith Administration’s commitment to lower the cost of the pilot, should result in a lower overall cost than the $9.3 million originally quoted. An update on the cost will be provided to Council in late May/early June.
The Transportation Planning Department will now work on what the monitoring and success of the network pilot will look like going forward, and prepare to report on this to the SPC on Transportation and Transit this coming June 2014.The Department also needs to look at how to best connect 8th Avenue & 9th Avenue now that 1st Street SE is not included in the network connecting the two roads.
