Fredericton's New Bike Lane

Fredericton is finally getting a new bike lane after almost three years of no growth! The city is building the bike lane on Sunset Drive from Celements Drive to Main Street on the North Side. This area of the city is going to continue to have increased traffic due to the population growth and it is great to have this sense of protection. Now if only the police will do something about motorists illegally parked in the bicycle lanes.

The York Street bicycle lane does not have an issue of motorists parking in the bike lane during weekdays and Saturdays, but there is an exception that parking is allowed on Sundays. You would think if the city spent the time and money to build a bike lane, they would at least make it a law to keep it clear, 24/7.

  1. There is also a bike lane on Goodine St. It runs from Adams St. to Harland/Mavis. It was installed as an experiment to see if narrower lanes would slow down traffic.

    Parking is only banned on one side of Goodine. Perhaps that is the case on other streets as well.

  2. Good to know! I'll add it asap :)
