New protected bike lanes under construction this summer ahead of bike share launch

The City of Vancouver is planning a major upgrade of the downtown bike lane network ahead of the launch of the city’s first bike share system this summer.

To help support this summer’s launch of Vancouver’s first public bike share system, the city is planning on adding several new protected lanes along major routes downtown, as well as improving existing routes.

If you’re wondering what a protected bike lane is, they are generally are separated from traffic by concrete medians and planters, bicycle parking corrals, or vehicle parking spots. Hornby Street is an example of a protected bike lane.

The protected bike lane is shown on Hornby Street, utilizing a planter to separate cyclists from traffic.

As you can see from the map above, new protected bike lanes will be added along Smithe Street from Beatty to Richards, and Nelson Street, also from Beatty to Richards. This will improve connections to the Cambie Bridge. A new bike lane will also be added along Cambie, from Dunsmuir to Water Street. Upgrades will also take place on Beatty Street.

The City of Vancouver says the work will be completed by this summer, and is already underway.
