The City of Delta has issued a request for proposals for design and construction services for a new multi-use pathway along the boulevard of 56th Street between 6th Avenue and Winskill Park and from 56th Street to Winskill Park via the park.
The project includes a new three-metre-wide asphalt multi-use pathway along the east side of 56th Street as well as street lighting improvements. The preliminary design is to be completed by October 2023 with a public consultation meeting to follow.
Construction is scheduled for the spring of 2024 with the work to be completed by November next year.
The project is part of Delta’s new Cycling Master Plan.
As part of the 2023 Capital Budget, the city has included approximately $550,000 of funding towards cycling infrastructure.
The funds will be used to complete a connection at 56th Street and 6th Avenue as well as design work for upcoming cycling projects including bike lanes along 12th Avenue west of 56th Street.
