Work begins Wednesday, Aug. 1, on intersection improvements and new traffic controls that will enhance safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists at the Scenic Drive South-4 Avenue South intersection. This construction will connect the new Bike Boulevard along 7 Avenue South and 4 Street South to the existing regional multi-use pathway system along the south side of Scenic Drive South. Details here.
Join us for the grand opening of the bike boulevard on 7th Ave. S.
The bulk of construction is now complete with some finishing work remaining. Watch for a grand opening in the spring of 2018.
Construction begins on the City's first ever, Bike Boulevard.
Intersection improvements begin starting with Squamish and Red Crow Blvd. in west Lethbridge.
A community Open House was held on April 11, 2017 to share information with residents on the plans for the bike boulevard and the intersection improvements. If you would still like to provide your feedback please view the materials below.

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.
The intersections targeted for improvements in 2017 include:
- Mayor Magrath Dr. S. & 40th Ave. S
- 6th Ave. S & 10th St. S
- 9th Ave. N & 18 St. N
- Bike Blvd s. (7th Ave. S. & 13th St. S.)
- 14th Ave. N & 28th St. N
The intersections targeted for improvements in 2018 include:
- Scenic S at 4 St S
- 28 St S at 28 Ave S
- 5 Ave S at 7 St S
- 6 Ave N at 28 St N
