Bike Lane Removal (M. Nickel)

 

 

 

Maintaining balance between travel modes as well as achieving the support of communities and stakeholders are important parts of creating a healthy, multi-modal city. In some cases when changes to travel modes are made, the unintended consequences for commuters and communities are felt more by some stakeholders than others.

Can Administration provide information on the current status of 97th Street Bike Lanes south of 63rd Avenue (to 34th Avenue), specifically including information on:

1. The impact of the bike lane installations on the neighbouring industrial/commercial communities as determined through community consultation.

2. The value of the 97th Street north south route to the bicycle community as a connector between destinations as determined by community and stakeholder consultation.

3. Alternate routes that could be considered that would provide similar bicycle network connectivity.

4. The cost of relocating 97th street Bike Lane to a location with similar connectivity.
