Reading Time: 4 minutes A bidirectional bike lane on Colonel By at Wellington St would be a welcome solution to an annoying missing cycling link. It is only 200 meters and it should be easy to implement.
Reading Time: 4 minutes I saw an interesting road modification on T-intersections in the Netherlands to slow traffic down. It looks simple to implement, there is no need for signs and it doesn’t appear to cost much.
Reading Time: 5 minutes The City of Ottawa and the NCC recently installed a new intersection at Colonel By and Main Street. Let’s have a closer look.
Reading Time: 8 minutes It is very disappointing to see that the City of Ottawa ignores the most important desire line at Algonquin Station, used tens of thousands of times each year by residents avoiding Baseline Rd.
Reading Time: 6 minutes Last fall, Woodroffe Ave in Ottawa got a 700 meter MUP on the west side, between Norice and (roughly) Baseline Station. But will it remain open? I am not so sure…
Reading Time: 5 minutes The closure of Wellington Street is welcome news, but road modifications in Ottawa in favour of Active Transportation is not new for the Nation’s Capital. See more examples here.
Reading Time: 6 minutes With the reconstruction of Albert St near the new library and the already opened NCC pathways on LeBreton Flats, a new promising cycling route to downtown may open up.
Reading Time: 6 minutes The National Capital Commission opened two new multi use pathways on Lebreton flats. The NCC introduced a stretch of 4 meter (12 ft) wide pathways and part of the pathways has a separation between cycling and walking. You’ll be cycling, walking or skiing (indeed, skiing) along LRT, a heritage aqueduct and historic bridges. Taking LRT to the Kichi Sibi ski trails is now easier than ever.
Reading Time: 5 minutes Chaudière Island in the Ottawa river is now partially being built up, but at the western tip a small new park was recently opened, as well as a new connection from the NCC pathways.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Gradually, Ottawa is adding more Dutch style protected intersections and raised bicycle tracks. Today, we take a look at new bike tracks and several protected intersections on Heron Rd. This is part of a bigger future cycling infrastructure system connecting to the Transitway system and a bit further away to the Trillium line at Mooney’s Bay station.
