The City of Ottawa will be upgrading the cycling and pedestrian facilities on Cyrville Road from Meadowbrook Road to Ogilvie Road.
- Cycling facilities: New buffered bike lanes, multi-use pathways and bicycle crossings will provide a continuous cycling route along this section of Cyrville Road, part of the City's Orleans Bikeway.
- Pedestrian facilities: New sidewalks, multi-use pathways and connections will make this section of Cyrville Road safer and more comfortable for pedestrians.
- Vehicle capacity: No impacts on vehicle capacity are anticipated along Cyrville Road.
The City will be implementing a number of improvements on Cyrville Road, including the following:
- New multi-use pathways on both sides of Cyrville Road from Meadowbrook Road to Labrie Avenue.
- One-way for cyclists, two-way for pedestrians.
- New concrete sidewalk for missing sections and buffered bike lane on both sides of Cyrville Road from Labrie Avenue to Ogilvie Road.
- Exception: A paved shared use shoulder with ripple strip on the east side of Cyrville Road from Cummings Avenue to Beauparc Private.
- Proposed new passenger pick-up and drop-off areas at Beauparc Private and at Cyrville Transit Station
- Concrete pads at all transit stops for future potential shelters.
- Connections between Cyrville Road facilities and the Cyrville Transit Station.
- Bicycle boxes, green pavement markings and cross-rides at intersections where appropriate.
- Narrowing and pavement markings at entrances with new MUP.
- Road resurfacing from 270m north of Meadowbrook Road to Ogilvie Road.
- Widening of Cyrville Road to the west at Ogilvie Road to accommodate a buffered bike lane and new sidewalk to the east.
- Upgrades to traffic signal controls to be compliant with Ontario accessibility legislation.
