    Recent News

    102 Ave overhead (station)

    The City of Edmonton has just announced the new redesign for a protected, physically separated bike lane (also known as a cycle track) along 102 Ave downtown, in the same corridor as the Valley Line LRT.

    The road safety review proposes a redesigned corridor that maintains the important multi-modal nature of 102 Avenue and increase safety for all road users. The proposed concept plan includes:

    • A South-side two-way cycle track
    • A North-side two-way LRT
    • A centre-running one-way motor vehicle travel
    • Sidewalks on both sides

    You can read more about the plan, and view cross-sections and the concept plan, on the City's website.

    102 Avenue cross section station

    Please be advised that from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Thursday July 23, Groat Road will be completely closed from 107 Avenue to River Valley Road for work on the 102 Avenue Bridge project.

    The shared-use path along the west side of Groat Road will also be closed from north of Government House Park to south of 107 Avenue.

    Please see detour map here: http://www.edmonton.ca/transportation/roads_traffic/102-ave-over-groat-rd-closures-detours.aspx

    Groat Bridge and Victoria Park Road will remain open during this time.

    The City of Edmonton thanks residents for their patience while we carry out this road work.

    Neighbourhood mode share

    Here are two maps showing where people ride in Edmonton.

    The first is an interactive heatmap generated by Strava, a smartphone app. Strava compiles the maps using GPS data from app users who record their rides. As such, as a data source, it has limitations (the record is skewed towards the type of person that is more likely to record their rides using a smartphone app), but is still informative and very interesting:

    Strava heat map

    The second is a map we compiled using City of Edmonton 2014 census data. This data also has significant limitations, namely, the question asked is "Main Mode of Transportation from Home to Work". For many people, if they primarily bike for 5 months of the year, and then drive for 7 months, their answer will appear as "100% driver, 0% bicycle". Similarly for people who bike 2 days a week and drive 3 days: their cycling trips aren't represented at all in this data.

    Additionally, most trips by bike are not for work (in the US, only about 13% of bike trips are for work), but our transportation network should still be accessible to everyone, regardless of the purpose of the trip. So census numbers greatly under-represent cycling. Still, they do offer a baseline for comparison between neighbourhoods.

    Neighbourhood mode share

    127 Street from Stony Plain Road to 118 Avenue is a project of the City’s Collector Concept Planning program. These projects are areas identified through the Neighbourhood Renewal public involvement process that would benefit from further in-depth public engagement and analysis.

    The project team will present the three concept plan options for 127 Street that have incorporated feedback from recent community Kitchen Table meetings and from the online discussion forum. (read more…) »
