The pilot project will focus on changing the current four lanes to three lanes. This traffic calming measure will help increase the comfort, accessibility and safety for all road users, including cyclists, pedestrians and drivers. It will also help reduce speeding on the roadway by narrowing the road and help keep traffic at a slower speed.
As part of the pilot, on-road protected bike lanes, dedicated vehicle parking lanes and a dedicated centre/left turn lanes will be added on various sections of Aquitaine Avenue.
The City is proceeding with the installation of the Aquitaine Avenue Road Safety Improvement Pilot Project. Installation will occur immediately, with the removal of existing pavement markings, and installation of new pavement markings and bike lane separation flex-posts and signage. Work will mostly occur during regular construction hours (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.), and there may be some quieter work happening later or overnight if required.
Three public online information sessions have been held on the following dates:
- May 1, 2021
- May 2, 2021
- May 16, 2023
The City continues to welcome feedback from residents and Aquitaine Avenue road users through the pilot project. To provide your feedback, contact the project owner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
