April 2021 - Update

by Admin1,

On April 29, 2021, City Council approved for 13 new Sunday/Holiday Bike Routes and expanded operating hours for both the new streets and the City’s four existing Sunday/holiday bike routes.

These routes are collectively being called the 2021 Enhanced Summer Bike Route Program.

City crews will begin implementing the program on Monday, May 3, 2021 and will open one route at a time as quickly as possible. We anticipate all routes will be open by mid-May (with the exception of Youville Street which will be delayed by reconstruction on Des Meurons Street).

The list below will be updated as routes open.

  • Lyndale Drive – Cromwell St to Gauvin St
  • Wellington Cres – Academy Rd to Guelph St
  • Wolseley Ave – Raglan Rd to Maryland St
  • Churchill Drive between Hay Street and Jubilee Avenue
  • Egerton Road between Bank Avenue and Morier Avenue
  • Kildonan Drive between Helmsdale Avenue and Irving Place
  • Kilkenny Drive between Burgess Avenue and Kings Drive / Kings Drive between Kilkenny Drive and Patricia Avenue
  • Alexander Avenue – Arlington Street to Princess Street
  • Ravelston Avenue – Wayoata to Brewster Street
  • Linwood Street – Portage Avenue to Silver Avenue
  • Harbison Avenue West – Henderson Highway to eastern terminus
  • Rose Lake Court surrounding Rose Lake Green
  • Youville Street – Eugenie Street to Haig Avenue (after the reconstruction of Des Meurons Street expected to be completed by Fall 2021 )
  • Rover Avenue between Hallet Street and Stephens Street
  • Scotia Street – Armstrong Ave to Anderson Ave
  • Assiniboine Avenue – Parkside Drive to Ferry Road
  • Wellington Avenue – Maryland Street to Strathcona Street

A few notes on the 2021 program:

  • Once the routes are operational, motor vehicle traffic on the streets will be limited to one block (with the exception of Lyndale Drive between Lawndale Avenue and Highfield Street, where residents of the bays are allowed to use the route to access their properties).
  • These routes are to be used solely by cyclists. In accordance with the Highway Traffic Act, pedestrians are not permitted on the roadway when a reasonably passable sidewalk is present.
  • Routes are not "open" to cyclists until the City has installed proper signage and barricades. Until these are in place, cyclists and motorists should continue to share the road under normal operational conditions.
