Visit the Bicycle Lanes 2011 Project Information Kiosk to learn more about the new bicycle routes.
Date: Saturday, June 4, 2011
Time: 9:30am – 6pm
Location: Southgate Centre (by the Food Court), 5015 – 111 Street
Installing these new bicycle routes will encourage cycling, which is an inexpensive, healthy and environmentally-friendly mode of transportation.
“Cycling is a healthy way to lower transportation costs”, says Jan Navarra, Transportation Engineer for the City of Edmonton. “It helps to stay active, reduce traffic congestion and decrease vehicle emissions.”
On-street bicycle routes will be added to 76 Avenue (Gateway Boulevard to Saskatchewan Drive), 106 Street (51 Avenue to Saskatchewan Drive), Saddleback Road and 97 Street (34 Avenue to 83 Avenue) in 2011.
