102 Ave and 83 Ave bike routes

ISL Engineering has been selected to design bike infrastructure for 102 Ave (from 136 St to 96 St) and 83 Ave (from 112 St to Mill Creek Ravine). From the City of Edmonton:

These routes are intended to be high quality, all‐seasons routes that will be comfortable to a wide range of users, particularly families. The bike routes could include separated bike lanes that have a physical separation between vehicle traffic and the bike lanes. They could also include buffered bike lanes or bike boulevards or some combination thereof.

These routes haven't been designed yet, so this is a prime opportunity for residents, business owners, and other community members who have interest in these routes to be involved in the planning and design of these bike routes. Even the routes themselves are up for discussion.

To be involved in the planning of 102 Ave, please join the West Downtown Complete Streets working group.

To be involved in the planning of 83 Ave, please join the Strathcona Complete Streets working group.

You don't have to be a cyclist to be involved. You don't even need to be an active supporter of cycling infrastructure to be involved: we are looking to have all perspectives represented constructively to achieve the best possible infrastructure.
