Adjustable Bike Lane Curbs
Starting the week of August 21, 2017 the City of Winnipeg is running a nine-month technical trial of adjustable bike lane curbs on existing bike lanes. The trial will include testing installation methods, monitoring maintenance including snow clearing and spring clean-up, and comfort level of users. The City of Winnipeg is exploring the feasibility of adjustable bike lane curbs. These adjustable bike lane curbs will allow the City to install protected bike lanes, while still being able to adjust the design of the lane if necessary to accommodate feedback from users and other stakeholders, as well as future changes in use of the roadway.
The curbs are currently installed with existing bike lanes at:
- Sherbrook Street south of Cumberland Avenue;
- Bannatyne Avenue between King Street and Albert Street.
The City is evaluating two types of adjustable curbs as part of this pilot project to observe which perform better.
The online survey is now closed. Thank you to the 347 people who provided feedback between August 21, 2017 to June 1, 2018. The project team is currently reviewing the feedback provided. Participants will have an opportunity to see how their comments were considered in a public engagement report that will be available on this project page in the coming days.
