The City of London has modified King Street, from Ridout Street to Colborne Street, to include a new protected bike lane, along the existing south-side curb.
This temporary infrastructure improvement was designed to enhance the safety of all road users with:
- A dedicated eastbound bike lane and buffer with barriers, to minimize potential conflicts between road users.
- Two vehicle-travel lanes to help maintain flow and connectivity in our core, especially while construction work is underway on parallel streets.
- 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.
- New transit islands, reducing congestion on sidewalks.
