We are making improvements to expand Edmonton’s active transportation network.
Project Update - October 2023
Before the active transportation network expansion funding was approved as part of the 2023-2026 capital budget, the planning and design of improvements for active transportation infrastructure for several high priority corridors was already underway. The Fort Road, 102 Avenue and 106 Street corridors will move forward to construction as part of the active transportation network expansion. Construction on these routes is planned to start in 2024.
We are expanding Edmonton's active transportation network to provide people of all ages and abilities more choice in how they move around the city, whether cycling, walking, running or rolling.
This project involves expanding active transportation infrastructure, such as shared pathways, along the corridors of Fort Road, 106 Street and 102 Avenue.
The planning and design of active transportation infrastructure along Fort Road, 127 Street, 106 Street, 102 Avenue and 100 Avenue is complete. The first stage of planning and design work included:
Identifying feasible active transportation improvements appropriate for each area
Developing and designing active transportation improvements that align with the City of Edmonton’s Bike Plan
Developing a strategy to build the proposed improvements including cost estimating, constructability review and maintenance analysis
The concept and preliminary design for the Corridors have been completed.
Feasibility studies have been completed for each of the two area networks in the neighbourhoods of Northlands/Exhibition, Highlands and surrounding areas and Bonnie Doon, Strathearn, Holyrood and Idylwylde.
The next steps for the area networks will include route selection and concept plan development.
