CYCLING MASTER PLAN

NOTICE OF STUDY COMPLETION

The County of Prince Edward has completed its Cycling Master Plan (CMP). This document provides direction and recommendations on The County’s network of continuous and connected cycling routes, building upon the existing cycling network; policies to aide implementation of cycling investments and foster a supportive cycling environment; and education and encouragement initiatives to facilitate behaviour change and continue to promote physical activity and outdoor recreation in Prince Edward County.

Existing and future active transportation options in the County

about 1 year

We want to hear from you about how we can improve active transportation in Prince Edward County. Presented on the map are potential cycling routes for your review and consideration. We invite you to use the pins to identify comments, suggestions, and observations about the existing transportation network.

  • Spine (Commuter) Network (Direct Connections) – Routes that serve as direct connections to population centers along County roads with select linkages along Provincial highways. 
  • Spine  (Commuter) Network (Long Term) – Routes that are meant to form the spine network but are likely not as feasible to be implemented in the short term. 
  • Touring (Recreation) Network – Routes will be aimed at supporting existing cycling trends and linking the spine network to tourism opportunities.

Thank you for your input and feedback to help shape the identification of transportation alternatives in Prince Edward County! 

CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded.
