Oxford Street Bike Lane Project

Connecting the Cycling Network to Residential Neighbourhoods

Oxford Street is identified in the 2020 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) as one of the many cycling corridors across the City. These bike lanes will extend the bike lanes that are proposed on Dunsdon Street from King George Road to Park Road North. The goal is to create an established cycling network to support a safer environment and encourage active transportation.

Currently, the existing cross-section of Oxford Street consists of one vehicle travel lane in each direction and cyclists have to share these lanes with motorists.

The proposed changes include one bicycle lane and one vehicular lane per direction, with a dedicated parking lane from Balmoral Drive to Olivetree Road, and dedicated turning lane from Olivetree Road to King George Road.

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 Oxford Street Bike Lane Project brochure is available for review.

Construction Impacts

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