Separated bike lanes on way

The City of Kelowna's active transportation network will be expanding later this year with projects along Ethel Street and Sutherland Avenue.

Designs will be made available to the public Feb. 28 at A.S. Matheson Elementary, from 4 to 6 p.m.

The Ethel Street project between Sutherland and Springfield is the latest phase of the Ethel corridor. It will include separated bike lanes, modifications to sidewalks as well as upgrades to the water utility, landscaping and street lighting.

Construction is expected to begin in March.

Work on the first phase of Sutherland Avenue between Lake Avenue and Ethel is slated to start in June. That work will also include a protected, two-way bike lane, upgrades to traffic signals, utilities, street lighting and sidewalks.

“Sutherland Avenue is positioned well for protected bike lanes,” says Gordon Foy, the city's transportation engineering manager.

“New protected bike lanes will expand our active transportation corridor network, providing a safe and convenient east-west route between Ethel and Abbott streets.”
