Last week I showed a number of new bicycle infrastructure improvements in Ottawa. This week we’ll look to several more new bike infrastructure projects in the city.
As 2023 comes to an end, I made an overview of the cycling projects that are (nearly) finished in Ottawa this year. Here is part 1 of 2 posts.
Part of Byron Ave in Ottawa recently went through an integrated road, sewer and watermain upgrade. The city used that as an opportunity to upgrade the road with separate bike infrastructure. Let’s have a look!
Do you find yourself wondering how fast traffic moves through your neighbourhood? Here is a simple method to roughly calculate just that.
A large piece of new active transportation infrastructure finally opened yesterday. Here is all the background you want to read about the historic Prince of Wales bridge, now the Chief William Commanda bridge, connecting Ottawa with Gatineau and an easier gateway to Gatineau Park.
The city of Ottawa is planning to widen the Airport Parkway with money from Developer Charges. Not so fast. There is quite a bit of concern about widening a road next to an already money losing Light Rail. Is there an alternative?
REcenlty I was driving and cycling in the Netherlands and I noticed a very cool and cheap safety solution: cat eyes in the road
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.
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.
Gatineau, across the river, scores high in the 2022 @PeopleforBikes city ratings. But look what happens if Gatineau and Ottawa are seen as a one National Capital Region, as the locals do: It has a similar rating as Vancouver, based on available data.
