About The Project
The City planned two major bike routes in the central part of Edmonton. The Downtown Route connects the communities of Downtown, Oliver and Glenora, between 96 Street and 136 Street. It links to destinations that include:
- Stanley Milner Library
- City Hall
- Winspear Centre
- Alberta Art Gallery
- City Market (104 Street)
- 124 Street and High Street shopping areas
These routes are high-quality facilities that make cycling more comfortable for all types of cyclists, from novice riders and families to experienced commuters. They were identified as major bike routes because they: have high numbers of existing bike trips, serve major destinations, and there are frequent requests for bicycle routes in the area.
102 Avenue, between 96 Street and 136 Street, was the top ranked location of the future Downtown Bike Route. It was ranked higher than the 103 Avenue option according to technical analysis and feedback gathered from residents during the June public workshops.
