112 Street was originally part of the concept plan. However, the route was modified to better tie into the cycling facilities on 110 Street and 111 Street, to access the University and neighbourhoods to the north and south.
These routes are high-quality facilities that make cycling more comfortable for all types of cyclists, from novice riders and families, to experienced commuters. The routes were identified as major bike routes due to the high numbers of existing bike trips, major destinations along the paths, and the frequent requests for bicycle routes in the area.
83 Avenue was the top ranked location of the Strathcona Bike Route. It was ranked higher than options on 81 Ave, 84 Ave, and Whyte Ave according to technical analysis and feedback gathered from residents during the June public workshops.
