Active Transportation Capital Projects
The 2016 Active Transportation Capital Program was approved by Council on February 1, 2016.
By the end of 2016, implementation of over 28 kilometres of new cycling and pedestrian paths will have started for a number of different uses.
Projects approved for 2016 include:
On-road cycle lanes
Along Bristol Circle around the entire length of Winston Park Boulevard; and along Winston Park Boulevard between Dundas Street and Bristol Circle.
Off-road multi-use trails
Along Cornwall Road between Chartwell Road and Morrison Road, and along both sides of Dundas Street between Neyagawa Boulevard and Oak Park Boulevard.
Along Cornwall Road from Chartwell Road to Morrison Road, Wedgewood Drive from Constance Drive to Devon Road, Constance Drive from Wedgewood Drive to Maple Grove Drive, Trafalgar Road over the QEW overpass, and on Upper Middle Road at Ninth Line.
Signed bike routes
Along sections of Arrowhead Road, Devon Road, Hixon Street, Jones Street, Lees Lane, Linbrook Road, Pinegrove Road, Pinery Crescent, Rockingham Drive, Sandwell Drive, Sedgewick Crescent, Warminster Drive, Woodhaven Park Drive, Yolanda Drive, and Sunset Drive.
In addition, the town will increase the number of bike racks/rings on the side streets in downtown Oakville and continue with its bike corral pilot project within the three BIAs.
Cycle, Walk Oakville
Town staff will be updating the Cycle, Walk Oakville web-based and hard copy maps, and participating in the Active and Sustainable School Transportation program.
Review Existing Active Transportation Network
Finally, a major initiative for 2016 will be to continue the review and assessment of the entire existing active transportation network in order to develop a larger scale capital rehabilitation program to ensure our paths and trails remain in good condition. Completion of the multi-use trail rehabilitation along Rebecca Street from Third Line to Fourth Line, as well as a review and rehabilitation of the multi-use trail along the south side of Upper Middle Road from Third Line to the Smith Triller Viaduct will also continue this year.
