Maple Avenue - Cycling Facility Design Feasibility Assessment

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Based on public engagement, Maple Avenue has been identified as a preferred location for active transportation improvements following the adoption of our on-going Active Transportation Master Plan development. The project team are currently developing a preliminary design for a cycling facility along Maple Avenue between Trafalgar Road and River Drive.

Maple Avenue is a significant east-west corridor within Georgetown. It is classified as a minor arterial road between Trafalgar Road and Mountainview Road, and a local road between Mountainview Road and River Drive.

The study will review best practices for cycling facilities implementation, identify and evaluate design alternatives on the potential impacts to the surrounding environments and select the most preferred design alternative.

The project aims at:

  1. Identifying a continuous and connected separated active transportation facility between Trafalgar Road and River Drive.
  2. Maintaining existing trees and retaining walls and fences along the corridor.
  3. Undertaking the relocation of utility poles if necessary.
  4. Considering existing property boundaries as part of this project and working within the physical constraints.
  5. Achieving implementation using a phased approach to align with previously identified construction projects being undertaken by the Town.

The Town thanks all community members who participated in the Maple Avenue Cycling Facility Design Feasibility Assessment public consultation. We have heard your concerns and want you to feel assured that all efforts will be made to consider all comments, concerns and suggestions. Receiving public input and feedback on this concept plan as you have provided is just what the Study Team needs to prepare the best possible design concept.
