The City of Kitchener has installed 5km of separated bike lanes on Queen’s Blvd, Belmont Ave, and Water St. The bike lanes are a pilot project approved by Council in early 2019 aimed to calm traffic, make roadways safer for all users, and to understand the full life cycle costs for separated bike lanes of this type.

We have been monitoring and evaluating how the new roadway design is performing, and will continue to do so. Based on our evaluations and your feedback, we will report back to Council with recommendations on the future of separated bike lanes in Kitchener.

Please note that due to the pandemic, we were unable to report back to Council in 2020 or 2021 as planned. Instead, a report will go forward in 2022. Please subscribe to this project to receive updates about its progress.
