Casorso Active Transportation Corridor

The City sought feedback on concepts for a new active transportation corridor (ATC) between Raymer Avenue and K.L.O. Road.

This new corridor (Casorso 4 ATC) 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.

We asked

Which route would you prefer between Raymer Avenue to K.L.O. Road?

Option 1: ATC runs down the length of the laneway between Raymer and K.L.O Road Option 2: ATC runs halfway down the lane, crosses over Fascieux Creek, and continues on the west side of the Okanagan College campus

Project Update

After reviewing technical considerations and public comments, and engaging with stakeholders, the Casorso 4 ATC project will move ahead with Option 1. This option is less costly and will maintain parking on the Okanagan College campus. Detailed design is currently underway.

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

Project Background

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

The Casorso 4 ATC project (Raymer-K.L.O.) is proposed for construction in 2021. Two future segments of the Casorso 3 ATC project (K.L.O.-Barrera) extending south, are currently in the preliminary design stage. There will be an opportunity for public input on the Casorso 3 ATC in 2021.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The proposed alignment of the Casorso 4 active transportation corridor (ATC) runs along Raymer Avenue (starting at Ethel Street) and turns onto the laneway, traveling north-south down the laneway to the northwest corner of the Okanagan College. From here, there are two route options to connect down to K.L.O. Road. 

    Complete this survey to let us know which of the two design options you prefer.
