Local Street Bikeways

Members of the municipality's Active Transportation team are exploring opportunities for Local Street Bikeways in the city. The first areas for consideration will be Vernon-Seymour and Allan-Oak Streets in Halifax. Our team is looking for community input on options for making these streets safer and more comfortable for bicycling, as well as other related street enhancements.

Local Street Bikeways are streets with low motorized traffic volumes and speeds, modified to optimize bicycle travel without the need for separated bicycle lanes or paths. These designated routes maximize cyclist convenience, comfort, and connectivity to appeal to users of all ages and abilities. Lower motor vehicle speeds and volumes are critical to facilitating safe sharing of the road along these routes. As a result, traffic control features may be added to facilitate increased safety and convenience for cyclists.

In-person engagement sessions were held Nov 8, 2017, and an online survey was conducted from Nov 9-22, 2017.
