Car Lane to be Removed from rue St-Jean?

Car Lane to be Removed from rue St-Jean?

The Accès Transports Viables (ATV) organization suggests that the city removes a car lane for a major part of St-John Street in order to give it to cyclists. A formal requisition was submitted to the committee in charge of the cycling highway.

Some changes, some very small, are planned for next year. It is mainly road marking, adding signs and indications. This is nothing close to the work done on De Callières and Père-Marquette Streets, which are the main streets for the cycling path.

ATV had the time to come back charging. The public transport advertising foundation insists that St-John Street offers a direct link between Montcalm and Old Quebec, it also minimizes detours.

To insert two cycling lanes (one for each direction) on this street already in full use, the city would have to give up one car lane between Turnbull and the Honoré-Mercier intersection.

The City has not made its decision yet. The work will be concentrated in the west section of the cycling way.
