Cyclists are asking the City of Gatineau to add a temporary bike lane on Fournier Boulevard because bike paths along the arterial road are flooded or impassable.

The springtime melt has caused nearby waterways to swell onto the paths, forcing cyclists to either push through the water or travel along the heavily-used thoroughfare, which has no designated lane.

Certain points along the paths are also completely barricaded, preventing cyclists from getting through.
