Richmond, Adelaide bike lanes to be extended by end of September
Lanes will be extended east to Parliament Street
Extensions to separated bike lanes on Richmond and Adelaide streets will be complete by the end of September, according to the City of Toronto.
The lanes currently run from University Avenue to Bathurst Street.
The new additions will extend the lanes eastward.
On Richmond Street, a one-way westbound street, the extension will run between Parliament and York streets. On Adelaide Street, a one-way eastbound street, the lanes will run between Parliament and Simcoe streets.
Bike lanes will also be added to both sides of Peter Street between King and Queen Streets.
The city says work will begin this week. The extensions are part of a pilot project to improve cycling infrastructure.
Earlier this year, the city reported that the overall cycling volume on Richmond, Simcoe and Adelaide has tripled since separated lanes were added.
