Winter Cycling Pilot Project – National Capital Commission

Winter Cycling Pilot Project - National Capital Commission

(Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: The National Capital Commission

Timeline for Completion: Winter Pilot 2019-2020


Cyclists in the urban core of Canada’s Capital will soon enjoy a smoother ride during the winter months as the National Capital Commission (NCC) increases the number of routes it clears of snow through its Winter Cycling Pilot Project.

The Winter Cycling Pilot Project will add more than one kilometre of bike lanes to the network on which the NCC clears snow and ice. This winter, snow will be removed from the Portage Bridge bike lane and the St. Patrick Street bike lane (from the Alexandra Bridge to Mackenzie Avenue). Both are key parts of connecting Ottawa and Gatineau in an active transportation network by allowing cyclists to travel more easily between the two cities.

For this pilot project for the 2019-20 winter, the NCC will modify its snow removal arrangements, in collaboration with the City of Ottawa.
