Athol Street Cycle Tracks

The City of Oshawa is proposing cycle tracks, also known as separated bike lanes, along Athol Street from Mary Street to Centre Street and we invite you to a Public Information Centre on to review and comment on different options being considered for implementation. Cycle tracks or separated bike lanes require more width than typical bike lanes. In order to maintain traffic flow and bus service, the design will result in the removal of on-street parking along the south side.

A Public Information Centre will be held Tuesday, February 28 between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. in the C Wing Committee room located within Oshawa City Hall (50 Centre St. S, Oshawa). Staff from City of Oshawa Engineering Services will provide a presentation and a question answer session on the proposed project details beginning at 6:30 p.m. Following the presentation, attendees have the opportunity to provide their perspective on the key areas of consideration.

Those who are unable to attend the P.I.C. in-person are invited to submit questions and beginning Tuesday, February 21, the online survey will be available. Alternatively, the survey can also be completed in-person at Service Oshawa, located on the first floor at City Hall (50 Centre Street South). Feedback opportunities will remain open until Friday, March 17.

Feedback received at the P.I.C., in-person at Service Oshawa and online on Connect Oshawa will be reviewed and captured in a report to the Development Services Committee this spring.

  • What is the difference between cycle tracks and bike lanes?
    4 days ago

    A bike lane is a portion of the road that is assigned solely for cyclists using pavement markings and signage.  An example is the bike lanes along Mary Street.

    A cycle track, separated bike lane or protected bike lane, all refer to the same thing, which is, a bike lane that is located within or next to the roadway, but is made distinct from both the sidewalk and roadway by vertical barriers or elevation differences.
