Context

Old St Patrick Street has several community amenities including De La Salle High School, St. Clement Parish church, and medical facilities. The road is served by OC Transpo route 6 which provides connections to Rockcliffe, the Byward Market, Centretown, Bank Street down to Greenboro and South Keys, and O-Train Line 1.

Current Project

The 2013 Ottawa Cycling Plan identified a need for bicycle facilities along Old Saint Patrick St, particularly to support safer student travel to De La Salle high school, and proposed adding bicycle facilities between Beausoleil Dr and Cobourg St. An online public consultation to implement bicycle facilities occurred in 2018; however, the project was paused. Feedback received consisted of: support for the plan, concerns about the reduction in on-street parking, and concerns about the lack of physical separation of the proposed bicycle facilities. The public open house on June 7, 2023 restarts the public consultation process for this project.

Objective

The project’s primary objective is to provide a safe route for students and residents to access the school and other amenities on Old Saint Patrick by bike and on foot. The proposed cycling facilities will complement other ongoing nearby initiatives to improve cycling safety and connectivity.
