The purpose of this update is to provide Council with more information about development of key projects along with a status report of their progress.

Jones Ferry Road Protected Bike Lane - On August 11, 2021 Public Works staff installed the flex posts in the buffer space between the motor vehicle lane and the bicycle lane to create a protected bicycle lane. Staff expect to monitor conditions as it relates to winter maintenance and collect data at regular intervals to assess impacts of this change.
