Lake-to-Lake Bike Route Construction

Important: Please note the Lake-to-Lake Bike Route is not open or usable until the traffic signals are in place. Temporary barriers will be blocking the route until it is complete and safe to use. Watch this page for updates.

Construction is now underway on sections 3 and 4 of the Lake-to-Lake Bike Route. This includes the portion starting from Lakeshore Drive along Martin Street and Fairview Road to Duncan Avenue. Note that plans for sections 1 and 2 of the route, which would complete the connection to Skaha Lake, are still in the works.  Further details about the project are outlined below.
