South Park Street Bike Lane Improvements

Current South Park Street bike lane near the Spring Garden Road intersection, with cars parked on the right hand side and road traffic on the left hand side.

Planning is underway to enhance the existing South Park Street bike lanes (Sackville Street to Morris Street) and to extend the bike lanes south to Inglis Street.

If you were unable to make the January 31st engagement session, key design documentation, and a survey are available. Tell us what you think about proposed improvement and extension options for the South Park Street bike lane project.

    Introduction

    Halifax aims to increase the transportation options available to its residents and support the development of communities that are healthy places to live. In support of these broad council priorities, the municipality is designing changes to the existing bike lanes on South Park Street (from Sackville Street to Morris Street/University Avenue) and an extension of these bike lanes south to Inglis Street to improve safety and bicycle route continuity.

    Project Objectives

    • Explore opportunities to make the South Park bike lanes safer based on “best practice” design guidance
    • Improve continuity at intersections
    • Increase separation from vehicleS
    • Extend bike lanes south to Inglis Street
    • Understand the implications to, and continue to accommodate, other street functions (i.e., pedestrians, car and truck traffic, on-street parking, loading, transit, trees)
    • Submit a recommendation to Council in 2017 to implement the preferred option in 2018
