Edmondson Street Bike Lane Project

Connecting the cycling network to residential neighbourhoods

Our goal is to create an established cycling network to support a safer environment and encourage Active Transportation. Edmondson Street is identified in the City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) as one of the many cycling corridors across Brantford. These bicycle lanes will be a connection to the existing multi-use path on Wayne Gretzky Parkway. A neighbourhood bikeway will also be created along Farringford Drive and Baxter Street to create an east-west cycling route.

What will these changes look like?

Curb to curb road widths will remain the same-there will be no modifications to sidewalks or private properties. Traffic control at intersections along the corridor will remain the same.

Existing cross-section on Edmondson Street

The existing cross-section of Edmondson Street with one vehicle travel lane in each direction each 5.5 metres wide.

The current cross-section of Edmondson Street consists of one 5.5 metre wide vehicle travel lane in each direction. Cyclists have to share these lanes with motorists.

Proposed cross-section on Edmondson Street

The proposed cross-section of Edmondson Street with one vehicle travel lane in each direction each 3.5 metres wide and one bike lane in each direction each 1.5 metres with buffer lanes on each side 0.58 metres wide

The proposed changes include one 1.5 metre wide bicycle lane and one 3.5 metre wide vehicular lane in each direction, with a physically-separated buffer lane between the bike lanes and vehicle lanes. These buffer zones will consist of bike curbs and flexible bollards to provide additional protection and comfort for cyclists.

We want to hear from you!
