Closed: Engagement took place from December 10, 2021 to January 10, 2022.

The City sought feedback on the conceptual design for a new active transportation corridor (ATC) on Casorso Road between K.L.O. Road and Barrera Road.

This new corridor (Casorso 3 ATC) will close the final gap in the existing north-south network by extending the Ethel/Casorso ATC, linking Downtown and Capri-Landmark to Pandosy and Lower Mission. It will give people biking and walking better access to major destinations like Okanagan College, Casorso Elementary School, and Pandosy Urban Centre.


Project Background

A key objective identified in the 2016 Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan (PBMP) and Transportation Master Plan is to ensure that walking and bicycling are safe, convenient, and practical modes of travel. Active transportation corridors increase the number of people walking and bicycling by providing comfortable and safe connections between key destinations for cyclists of all ages and abilities.

Casorso 3 ATC - engagement closed, final design in development.

Following public engagement, final design is expected to be complete by spring with construction expected to start later in 2022. Read the engagement results.

Casorso 4 ATC - engagement complete, construction underway

Engagement for the northern portion of the Casorso ATC project (Casorso 4 ATC, from Raymer-K.L.O.) took place from December 2020-January 2021. Two design options were presented. After reviewing technical considerations and public comments and engaging with stakeholders, construction for Casorso 4 began in September 2021. The new ATC route will be accessible to the public by spring 2022. Read more.

    In December 2020, the City sought feedback on concepts for the northern portion of the Casorso ATC project (between Raymer Avenue and K.L.O. Road). After reviewing technical considerations and public comments, and engaging with stakeholders, the Casorso 4 ATC project is moving ahead with Option 1 (shown below). This option is less costly and will maintain parking on the Okanagan College campus.

    This new corridor will close gaps in the existing network by extending the Ethel Street ATC south, linking downtown and Capri-Landmark to South Pandosy. It will also offer bicyclists and pedestrians better access to major destinations like Okanagan College.

    Key features of the corridor include:

    • Extension of the protected bike lanes from Ethel Street along Raymer Avenue
    • A north-south bike route along the laneway west of the wastewater treatment plant between Raymer Avenue and K.L.O. Road
    • Renewal of existing infrastructure, such as repaving the laneway
    • New infrastructure, including:
      1. concrete curb on Raymer to separate bicyclists from motor vehicles
      2. new markings and signage on both Raymer and the laneway
      3. new lighting in the laneway
      4. a two-way bike path along K.L.O. Road connecting from the south end of the laneway to the Casorso Road intersection crossing
    • Tree consideration along K.LO. Road in coordination with Okanagan College

    Construction for the new route began in fall of 2021 and will be accessible to users by spring 2022.
