Cycling Network Implementation Plan - 2017 Projects
Central North-South Corridor East of the Moira River and East-West Corridor - Bridge Street East
Cannifton Rd, Belleville
Design Being Completed
The City's Transportation Master Plan includes a recommended Belleville Cycling Network to accommodate and promote active transportation. A Cycling Implementation Project Plan has been developed based on the top priority cycling routes as identified from public feedback.
In 2016, the City of Belleville's first on-street bicycle lanes were installed on Yeomans Street and North Park Street along with upgrades to key connection points and the establishment of designated cycling routes. A new path along Dundas Steet West is being constructed as part of the CPR Bay Bridge Road Replacement and Dundas Street West Reconstruction Project.
Under the Cycling Implementation Project Plan, the projects proposed for 2017 are:
- Central North-South Corridor East of the Moira RIver - designated cycling route on Centre Street, College Street East, Cannifton Road (including upgrades at rail underpass), Reid Street, Station Street, Albion Street, Pine Street, Foster Avenue
- East-West Corridor - Bridge Street East - bike lanes
Though preliminary cycling facilities (shared lanes, on-street bicycle lanes, in-boulevard paths or off-road trails) have been proposed for budgetary consideration, final selection of the appropriate solution will follow the Ontario Traffic Manual Book 18 - Cycling Facilities guidlines.
The intent is to hold public meetings when new bicycle facilities are proposed to ensure that the public is fully aware of how roads will be affected.
