Overview

The City delivers new pedestrian and cycling facilities through numerous programs including road resurfacing, integrated road reconstruction, new transit facilities, new development and safety improvements. This approach to improving active transportation is an important part of the City’s Complete Streets policy.

The City also delivers new walking and cycling facilities to address missing links through various active transportation programs (such as the annual Pedestrian Facilities Program, Cycling Facilities Program and the Cycling & Pedestrian Major Structures Program). These programs deliver independent projects to implement targeted active transportation facilities on priority routes citywide. The active transportation programs also work in conjunction with other planned projects to fund active transportation enhancements that would otherwise be out of scope.

This links below provides a summary of recently completed active transportation projects that were constructed with full or partial funding from Transportation Planning Service Area budgets The Project Key provides a source reference where project approval or funding was obtained. Ward numbers are based on the ward boundaries as of project completion.

Active transportation projects opened in 2022

Note: a facility is considered “open” once a cyclist or pedestrian is permitted to use the facility (typically after pavement markings are in place). Other aspects of the project (e.g. landscaping) might still be incomplete.

Bank Street Underpass Multi-Use Pathway Project

The City of Ottawa and the National Capital Commissions have provided enhancements to the pedestrian and cyclist multi-use pathway on the Rideau River Eastern Pathway. The construction of a grade-separated crossing below Bank Street, adjacent to the abutment along the eastern shore of the Rideau River, has greatly improved the pedestrian and cyclist experience.
