Forest Hills Parkway – Cycling and Walking Enhancements
Please take the survey!! The link is below.
"...currently the road does not have a bicycling facility and the sidewalk is substandard along several sections. As part of the municipality’s Active Transportation Priorities Plan and as part of the Regional Plan direction to develop “complete streets”, the municipality is considering how to make walking and cycling on Forest Hills Parkway easier, safer and more enjoyable.
Options being considered include on-road bike lanes combined with an improved sidewalk or a multi-use pathway, where bicyclists and pedestrians would share a wider asphalt corridor."
