Ensuring safety for cyclists during construction and closures

While we live in a city with plenty of construction and other necessary street closures, we need to always remain diligent in ensuring that cyclist safety is not compromised during these times. 

I, along with my colleagues Councillor Layton and Councillor McMahon, have written a letter to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) urging them to adopt measures developing a protocol to better address cycling infrastructure during times of road closures or bike lane disruptions, including the installation of temporary cycling infrastructure and/or detour routes when bike lane closures are necessary.

I hope that the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee will adopt these measures and ensure that cyclist safety is always protected during periods of construction and road closures.
