The Town of Ladysmith will study possible active transportation improvements including bicycle infrastructure, crosswalk improvements and expanded accessibility along Dogwood Drive.
The town announced, in a press release this week, that it has received a $35,000 federal grant to look at active transportation along Dogwood in between Bayview Avenue and Methuen Street, and along Bayview as well.
The town’s bicycle plan had previously identified those streets as priorities for cycling improvements. Greater walkability and connectivity for people who use mobility scooters are other goals. A final report and preliminary designs will help staff with capital project planning, the town said.
“Dogwood Drive is a primary point of entry into downtown Ladysmith and by encouraging cycling, walking and rolling, the town is helping to reduce unnecessary congestion and greenhouse gas emissions caused by short trips within town,” noted the release.
