Project overview

The City is upgrading the existing bikeway along 2 Street S.W., from 10 Avenue to 26 Avenue. This section of roadway is well used and scheduled to be resurfaced. As part of the resurfacing work, we are planning to upgrade the existing shared driving and cycling lane and install curb extensions to make it safer for people to cross the road.

These changes will improve the walking and cycling experience, provide better access and connections to key destinations in this area, and connect to the existing cycle track and pathway system.

Engagement

Input from the community and the public has helped us create and refine designs for the roadway. To review the design concepts that we asked for feedback on, and the engagement process, please visit the project engagement page.

The What We Heard report from the second phase of engagement is now complete. To review the What We Heard report please visit the project engagement page.
