Project background

Abbott Street is one of Kelowna's busiest bicycling and pedestrian routes.

We're planning upgrades to create a safer and more comfortable bicycling route for people of all ages and abilities.

The existing Abbott Street Active Transportation Corridor (ATC) was designed and constructed in 2012.

Permanent construction of the rest of the corridor to Boyce-Gyro Beach Park is planned for the year 2030 or later, pending budget availability.


Proposed quick-build infrastructure strategy

To extend the Abbott ATC sooner than 2030, until the permanent facility can be built, we're piloting the use of quick-build infrastructure.

Quick-build strategies combine interim materials within existing street space, with limited new construction, to deliver projects faster and at a lower cost.


Next steps

Public input will inform the design of both the proposed quick-build Abbott ATC and the potential future use of quick-build infrastructure for other active transportation projects in Kelowna.

Detailed design in 2021 will consider public feedback, with construction planned for early 2022 pending Council approval of additional budget.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    We're piloting the use of quick-build strategies to extend the Abbott Street Active Transportation Corridor (ATC). This consultation aims to inform you about the Abbott Active Transportation Corridor (ATC) project and seek your feedback on both the proposed design and use of quick-build active transportation infrastructure in general. 

    The use of quick-build strategies and the constraints of existing infrastructure limits design options throughout the corridor. This limits the range of choices possible within the project. 

    We value your feedback and will consider suggestions when finalizing the Abbott ATC design and identifying other potential opportunities for quick-build ATC infrastructure elsewhere in Kelowna.
