The City of Maple Ridge completed a corridor study in 2016 which considered traffic and transportation concerns along 123 Avenue, from 203 Street to 216 Street. The feasibility study of potential road improvements and the resulting proposed options were supported by the Neighbourhood Transportation Advisory Committee (NTAC) at that time.
Information sessions were held in 2016 and 2017 where these proposed options were presented and feedback was solicited. City staff are currently refining the plans, taking into account feedback from the very well attended information sessions.
123 Avenue between 203 Street and Laity Street
The first information session was held March 9, 2016 at Laity View Elementary School. View the Display Boards (PDF) presented. Feedback from the information session indicated interest in both proposals, lane width narrowing and protected bike lane.
The protected bike lane concept is not intended to take precedence over traffic calming, but rather to present another option that would meet the goals to calm traffic along the corridor but also accommodate a Triple A (All Ages and Ability) cycling facility.
123 Avenue between Laity Street and 216 Street
The information session was held March 10, 2016 at Laity View Elementary School. View the Display Boards (PDF) presented. The installation of temporary measures are in place as per the proposed plan.
An interim intersection button has been installed at the intersection of 123 Avenue and Creston Street. This will encourage slower travel speeds on 123 Avenue.
Funding for the proposed total road reconstruction and corridor improvements has been included in the Financial Plan.
