Question Title

Let’s reimagine how we move in Saskatoon!

In support of the City’s active transportation goals, Avenue C has been identified for walking and cycling improvements. The City of Saskatoon needs your input on developing a plan to enhance mobility and safety on Avenue C from Spadina Crescent to 45th Street. 

The feedback and ideas you provide in this short survey will be used to help refine the design options for the future of active transportation along Avenue C.

An All Ages and Abilities (AAA) cycling facility is designed to be safe and comfortable for people ages 8-80. Three key principles of designing AAA cycling facilities are:

•  Safety: Because cyclists are vulnerable road users.
•  Comfort: To attract and encourage new cyclists.
•  Connectivity: To create practical routes to other cycling facilities and key destinations in the City.
AAA cycling facility types on Avenue C could include:

•  Multi-Use Pathway
Multi-use paths are physically separated from vehicles and run alongside or nearby roadways. Multi-use paths allow for bidirectional travel and are shared by cyclists and other non-motorized users. 

•  Neighbourhood Bikeway
Neighbourhood Bikeways are low-speed, low-volume on-street routes. Bikeways include a range of features like signage, pavement markings, and traffic calming.

•  Protected Bicycle Lane – Street Level
These physically separated, on-street lanes are designed exclusively for bike travel. Physical separation from vehicles can be achieved through various measures, such as raised curbs, parking, bollards (short posts), or planters. 
•  Protected Bicycle Lane – Sidewalk Level
These physically separated lanes are designated exclusively for bike travel. The physical separation from vehicles is achieved by raising the bike lane to sidewalk level. 

Walking improvements for Avenue C will be presented to the community during the next round of engagement.
