City of Lethbridge officials have unveiled short and long term plans for the development of 6th and 7th Avenues South at the third and final public forum held in the city hall foyer on June 18. These plans, designed to address the need for all modes of transportation in this part of Lethbridge over the next 25 years, include significant enhancements to Infrastructure for pedestrian and bicycle modes of transportation.
Of special significance for cyclists is the recommendation for the entire length 7th Avenue South, from 4th Street South to Mayor McGrath Boulevard. It will be turned into a bike boulevard where bicyclists and vehicles will use the street concurrently, with bicyclists having the priority! This will finally give cyclists, especially cycling commuters, the crucial east-west safe-bicycling corridor across the central part of the city.
