Brantwood Park Bike Lane Project

Creating a Safer Cycling Environment

Brantwood Park Road is identified in the 2020 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) as one of the many cycling corridors across the City. Currently, sharrows are painted on Brantwood Park Road to create a shared-use cycling lane between bicycles and vehicles. The City is proposing to upgrade the cycling facilities on this roadway to designated bike lanes. The bike lanes will extend from Lynden Road to Powerline Road and will connect the Dunsdon Street Bike Lanes and the Powerline Road Multi-Use Path. The goal is to create an established cycling network that supports a safer environment for all road users, and encourages active transportation as a viable transportation mode.

Currently, the existing cross-section of Brantwood Park Road consists of one shared-use vehicle/bicycle travel lane in each direction and a designated parking lane on each side of the street. The proposed changes include one bicycle lane and one vehicular lane per direction, with only one designated parking lane on one side of the street. Curb to curb widths will remain the same, and there will be no modifications to sidewalks or private properties. Traffic control at intersections along the corridor will also remain the same.

Our Brantwood Park Road Bike Lane Project brochure is available for review.

Construction Impacts

The construction impact of this project is expected to be minimal. There is no civil work involved with this project. Pavement marking, grinding, and remarking will take place overnight to limit the impact to vehicle traffic. Signage will also be modified to be consistent with the new road design.
