The County...on the Move! PEC's Transportation Master Plan & Cycling Master Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In November 2019, Prince Edward County initiated the development of a Transportation Master Plan and a Cycling Master Plan. Both plans will be completed using a similar process and the outcomes and recommendations will be combined into a comprehensive set of planning policy, infrastructure and implementation tools which means that:

  1. There will be a clear set of recommendations on where and how transportation will be improved;
  2. There will be policies in place to support the improvements and to address long-term community needs; and
  3. There will be strategies to help the County determine how to build, pay for and promote transportation County-wide.

Together the transportation master plan and the cycling master plan will be implemented to achieve a common vision for the future of transportation within Prince Edward County:

Prince Edward County is committed to developing a well-connected multi-modal transportation network that is equitable, sustainable and accessible. The transportation network will help to achieve and be supportive of a smart rural community. The transportation network of tomorrow will enhance the quality of life for all residents while preserving the cultural history of Prince Edward County.

The County has retained WSP Canada Group Limited (WSP) to develop both the Transportation Master Plan and Cycling Master Plan, which are expected to be completed by December 2020.
