I am happy to report that a design solution has been confirmed that will improve connectivity and cycling safety on Booth Street between Albert Street and the intersection of the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway.
Below are functional design renderings of the future Booth Street solution. These renderings are subject to change once the detailed design phasecommences.
This functional design solution, which features a mix of cycle tracks and bike lanes along Booth Street, will provide safe cycling connectivity within this important active transportation corridor to many current and future amenities in this area, including:
Future Confederation Line Pimisi station
Bike paths between Ottawa and Gatineau
Canadian War Museum and Holocaust Memorial
Future developments in the vicinity, including LeBreton Flats and Zibi
This solution would not have been possible without the collaboration between the City and several active transportation groups including Citizens for Safe Cycling, Healthy Transportation Coalition, EcoDistrict Ottawa, West Side Action (Blog), Ecology Ottawa, Share the Road Ottawa and the City of Ottawa Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee.
Many thanks to these groups for their support throughout this process. As this key transportation project moves forward, residents will be kept informed of design, construction, and implementation timelines.
