The City of London will be modifying King Street, from Ridout Street to Colborne Street, to include a new separated bike lane, along the existing south-side curb. This temporary infrastructure improvement project aims to enhance the safety of cyclists and all road users by reconfiguring the current roadway.
The new design will:
- Provide a dedicated eastbound bike lane and buffer with barriers, to minimize potential conflicts between road users.
- Include two vehicle-travel lanes to help maintain flow and connectivity in our core, especially while construction work is underway on parallel streets.
- Maintain some on-street parking on the south side of King Street, which will also act as a barrier between cyclists and all other moving traffic.
- Introduce transit islands, reducing congestion on sidewalks.
Temporary King Street cycling improvements support the City’s 2015-2019 Strategic Plan of building a sustainable city by implementing and enhancing safe mobility choices for all road users.
Construction on King Street is planned for spring 2019. The work will be scheduled to minimize impacts in coordination with the other core construction projects.
The diagram above looking east shows a south cycle lane with raised transit island.
Scope of Project
- Pavement and line markings and concrete curbs
- Transit islands and bus stop construction
- Signage installation
- Planters situated at key locations in the bike lane buffer area
