The City of London has retained a consultant to help with the evaluation of an east-west bikeway in the Downtown and Old East Village.
The phase 1 evaluation will identify the benefits and impacts of a separated bikeway facility on several different corridors to determine high level feasibility and select a preferred corridor. Phase 2 will determine a suitable configuration for a separated bikeway and develop a conceptual design.
This analysis will be coordinated with the Old East Village Secondary Plan
The Corridors to be evaluated in phase 1 are:
1. Dufferin Avenue from Ridout Street to Adelaide Street North then Lorne Avenue from Adelaide Street North to Charlotte Street;
2. Dundas Street from Ridout Street to Egerton Street;
3. York Street from Ridout Street to Rectory Street;
a. Option A: Connect to Dundas Street via Rectory Street, then Dundas Street from Rectory Street to Egerton Street 2
b. Option B: Florence Street from Rectory Street North to Egerton Street, and connect to Dundas Street via Egerton Street
4. Queens Avenue and King Street Couplet from Ridout Street to Egerton Street.
Note: The couplet could merge together at Dundas Street if it is deemed a suitable connection.
Note: Combinations of the above could also be considered if preliminary analysis suggest there is a strong benefit associated with a combination route.
