Residents surrounding Victoria Avenue were invited to attend a public meeting on Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at St. Frances School (2141 McPherson Avenue) to view the proposed design of Victoria Avenue between 11th Street and 8th Street.  The meeting was hosted by the City of Saskatoon, Transportation Division.

The City has been preparing a corridor plan for Victoria Avenue in anticipation of the reopening of the Traffic Bridge.  An assessment has been completed between 11th Street and 8th Street in order to make modifications and/or improvements to this section of roadway and make Victoria Avenue consistent with newly approved plans and directions, such as the Active Transportation Plan.

All local stakeholders are welcome and encouraged to participate.  Please join us as we discuss Victoria Avenue.

I commend City Admin for proposing what it has for the Victoria Corridor. review The implementation of the active transportation plan looks great, especially the physically separated cycle track that appears in the current drawings.

I support what is being proposed. I look forward to using both the pedestrian paths (on days when I am walking) and the cycle tracks (on days when I am riding) in my daily commute.

Thanks for your effort on this!

Looks very nice..however during the winter, snow and ice build up in the bike lanes is a concern. Will the bike lanes be cleaned after every snowfall?
