Bike Lanes Coming to Totten Street
The City of Windsor will begin installing buffered bike lanes on Totten Street between South Cameron Boulevard and Hillcrest Boulevard on April 1, 2019.
The contractor for the project expects the work to last until June, but once complete, it will provide a valuable connection between the recently constructed buffered bike lanes on South Cameron Boulevard and the bike lanes on Prince Road, as well as the trail that passes through the South Cameron Woodlot via Randolph Avenue. The painted buffer provides additional separation and comfort between the people on bikes and in vehicles.
Property owners along the route will play an important role in this project. Work done that has any impact on private properties will be repaired to its pre-construction state. The City asks that residents keep collection days in mind during construction and follow the instructions on the Project Notification Letter to help ensure no containers go missing.
Drivers travelling through or within the construction zone are reminded to do their part to make sure everyone goes home safely: reduce your speed, follow the signage and respect the flag persons when present.
This bike lane project will include widening the existing pavement to add a buffered bike lane in each direction. Roadside drainage has also been taken into consideration and incorporated into the design.
