Transportation Projects

The Active Transportation Master Plan aims to increase active transportation (walking, rolling, or cycling) to 20 percent of all trips by 2034. Aligned with existing plans and provincial recommendations, it reflects community desires for a greener, healthier and safer city.

We are making Bayridge Drive safer for people who walk, bike and drive between Henderson Boulevard and Cataraqui Woods Drive. Improvements include a connected off-road route for walking and biking. Part of this path will also be part of the Great Lakes Trail. 

This project benefits from federal funding through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. 

What the route will look like for different types of travel: 

    • Pedestrians: We are adding sidewalks and pathways to Bayridge Drive for pedestrian safety and convenience. Improvements include easier road crossings and intersection safety enhancements. 
    • Cyclists: We are building separate bike paths along Bayridge Drive, providing safe cycling options for all skill levels. Intersections will be upgraded to include dedicated bike crossings and traffic signals. 
    • Transit Users: This project will improve connections for cyclists and pedestrians to local and express transit services on Bayridge Drive, making it safer and more convenient to include public transportation in your travels. 
    • Drivers: Safety improvements along the road include green crosswalks and bike signals at intersections. We will remove one southbound lane between Hudson and Lincoln Drive and a lane in each direction between Lincoln and Coverdale Drive to accommodate the off-road bike route and expand pedestrian paths.

Improvements include adding new sidewalks and bike lanes and installing traffic signals at important crossings to keep pedestrians safe. The sidewalk design considers existing limitations. Due to space constraints, bike lanes will be on the road. We will mark existing bike lanes on Collins Bay Road and Princess Street, linking them to new multi-use pathways. Safety measures include signalized crossings and a pedestrian crossing on Woodbine Road.

A study is being finalized to identify new locations and designs for a pedestrian crossing over John Counter Boulevard and the CN Rail line. This crossing will connect the existing Kingston and Pembroke Trail (K&P Trail) between Division Street and Elliot Avenue, creating a north-south connection.

Beginning in 2024, we will be making improvements to the intersection and pathways at John Counter Boulevard and Montreal Street. This project will include new lighting, traffic signals, lanes, paving and signage at the intersection of John Counter Boulevard and Montreal Street. The project also includes a new multi-use pathway along the south side of John Counter Boulevard from Elliott Avenue to Ascot Lane. 

To improve walkability and safety for students walking to the elementary schools on Lancaster Drive, a new sidewalk will be built along the north side of Lancaster Drive from Limestone Drive to Jasper Court. The sidewalk will take into consideration the slope of existing driveways as well as existing trees and utility equipment. Crosswalks will be added on Lancaster Drive at the intersections of Newhall Drive and Bentley Terrace. 

We are adding a new sidewalk on the south side of McMahon Avenue from Jane Avenue to Avenue Road. We are also rehabilitating the road between Jane Avenue and Avenue Road and adding traffic calming measures from Westmoreland Road to Avenue Road. 

People in the community shared their thoughts online between June 27 and July 18, 2023. This helped us decide where to put benches as part of the improvements on McMahon Avenue. 

Our Downtown Improvement Plan identified a need to close Ontario Street from Clarence Street to Brock Street, and Market Street from Ontario Street to King Street, to vehicular traffic. We are currently studying the feasibility of this project.

As part of Phase Two of the Williamsville Transportation Study, we heard from residents that there is a need for infrastructure built to support cycling along commonly used routes in the neighbourhood. An open house was along with an accompanying online survey to gather public input on which routes were vital and why. The information gathered from this engagement will be used to develop recommended design concepts.

We are adding a new sidewalk on Wise Street from Megan's Street to Woodbine Road. Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2024.
