Delta extending new cycling lane

The project is to be completed this spring
River Road on that stretch is classified as an arterial roadway and is on the city’s Major Road Network.

The City of Delta has issued a request for bids for the construction of protected cycle lanes along River Road from 72 to 76 streets.

The project, which has also received funding from TransLink, includes 1.8-metre-wide protected cycles lanes along the north and south side of River Road. It also includes roadway widening, repaving, concrete barricade installation, concrete bus pad installation and other features.

The work is to be completed by mid-April of this year.

Delta last year had protected cycle lanes constructed with a concrete barrier on River Road from 68 street to 72 street.

Council in 2023 endorsed a final draft of a new Cycling Master Plan for the city.

In the works for a couple of years, the plan outlines strategies, recommends infrastructure, policies and education to help enable and encourage cycling as a practical and convenient form of transportation.

Noting the development of the plan was based on public and stakeholder feedback, as well as a technical assessment of the cycling network, approximately 220 km of cycling facilities have been identified. The proposed projects range from low-to-high priority.

The overall plan is estimated to cost approximately $105 million.
