Project overview

Project description

In 2019, the City carried out a cycling safety review of intersections with high volume of cycling and motorist interactions across the city. The review proposed cycling safety improvement measures for a number of locations, including the intersection of St. Patrick Street and King Edward Avenue.

As part of the Road Safety Action Plan (RSAP) 2021 Implementation Plan, the intersection of St. Patrick Street and King Edward Avenue was identified as a high-volume cycling location to implement safety improvements.

The intersection of St. Patrick Street and King Edward Avenue is a signalized intersection with St. Patrick Street operating as one-way westbound road. There is an existing St. Patrick Street westbound on-road bike lane through the intersection, with a section of “floating” bike lane on the east approach adjacent to the dual right turn lanes.

The objective of this project is to upgrade the westbound approach of the intersection of St. Patrick Street and King Edward including removing the on-road bike lane and providing a segregated cycling track along the north side of St. Patrick Street with the appropriate treatment at the right turn channel, allowing for safe operations.
