New bike lanes coming to Vanier’s McArthur Avenue
Ottawa Citizen

Vanier’s McArthur Avenue is poised to get new bike lanes this year intended to make it easier for cyclists to travel between downtown and points east.

At an open house next week, the city will unveil plans for a functional redesign of McArthur between North River Road and St. Laurent Boulevard.

The city plans to use paint, signs and large concrete planter boxes to reconfigure the road and travel lanes, in part as a response to concerns about excessive speeding on a street with two elementary schools.
