Athol Street Cycle Tracks

Consultation has concluded

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.

The City of Oshawa Engineering Services staff thanks everyone who provided their thoughts and suggestions. Your feedback was reviewed and is captured in a report to the Development Services Committee that will be presented to the Development Services Committee on Monday, June 19, 2017.
