Where We Are Today

Certain sections of the network including 99 Street, between Jasper Avenue and 102A Avenue will be impacted by Stanley Milner Library construction and Valley Line stage 1 construction. This connection is currently under review with other downtown reconstruction projects and will be integrated at a later date as construction is completed.

ICE District construction is currently impacting 103 Street between 103 Avenue and 104 Avenue and the addition to the bike network will be incorporated as a connection to key destinations once this area of Ice District construction is complete.

July and September 2016: City Council Approved Downtown Bike Network

On July 12, 2016, Councillor Scott Mckeen presented a motion at City Council, “That Administration, in partnership with Stantec, provide an updated report on a minimum grid for physically separated bike lane infrastructure in the City of Edmonton's core and the report should include the potential use of relatively inexpensive (within existing resources) temporary infrastructure (example: bollards, mobile concrete curbs), as can be found in the City of Calgary's pilot project.”

City Council Meeting Minutes July 12, 2016 (Item 9.2)

The report went to Council September, 2016 and included three choices, and an estimated cost and completion of implementation. The report passed unanimously with the first choice, implementing the Downtown Bike Network by June/July, 2017.

Urban Planning Committee September 28, 2016 (Item 6.4)

 

June 11, 2014: Bike Infrastructure Plan Approved

Bike locations were identified in the Bicycle Transportation Plan. City Council approved the 2014-2018 Bike Infrastructure Plan. This plan identified the need to build high quality bike lanes in core areas of the city, including downtown. This type of infrastructure provides a safe environment for cyclists to be separated from other modes of transportation, and encourages more cycling while supporting a healthy and economically-friendly lifestyle.

City Council Meeting Minutes June 11, 2014 (Item 6.3)

2009: Bicycle Transportation Plan Approved

City Council approved the Bicycle Transportation Plan, which called for the installation of close to 500 km of on-street cycling facilities within the next 10 to 20 years.
