Lake-to-Lake Bike Route Construction

Construction of section 2 of the Lake-to-Lake Bike Route is proceeding on schedule and is set to be completed by the end of October. While work is starting to wrap up along Atkinson Street, the major roadwork has shifted toward Duncan Avenue. Atkinson Bridge remains closed while construction continues. Periodic road closures or delays may be required as construction proceeds. Please watch for on-site signage and flaggers, and expect delays. This page will be updated as construction advances.

Watch for these Changes along the Route

Building the Bike Route in Waves

The following is a summary of the key activities that will take place to build the bike route. Road construction normally occurs block-by-block to expedite the work and minimize disruption. As the bike lanes are long and narrow, the work is stretched across several blocks and will occur in waves with the following activities overlapping.
