Booth Street will get cycling lanes – eventually.

A major federal funding announcement Tuesday included $1 million for a Booth Street segregated cycle track between Albert Street and the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway, effectively proving the city can indeed install bike infrastructure on the Booth Street bridge.

But it won’t happen any time soon: even once the bridge is open, the track likely won’t be installed until 2018 or later, said asset management manager Alain Gonthier.
