About the Project
Purpose: To improve a number of intersections requiring upgrades throughout the city and enhance 7th Ave. S. with a bike boulevard making it cycling and pedestrian friendly.
This exciting project will include the development of the City of Lethbridge's first every bike boulevard. A bike boulevard is a street with low motorized traffic volumes and speeds. It is designed to give bicycle travel priority. Bike boulevards use signs, pavement markings and speed and volume management
measures. They discourage through trips by motor vehicles and create safe and convenient bicycle crossings of busy arterial streets.
In 2017 and 2018, there will be a total of 13 intersections enhanced across the city. For some, this will include traffic signals and for others new, wider curbs.
