City of Abbotsford seeks public input on Salton Road cycling project

Proposed project picks includes bike path between Salton and Montrose Avenue

The City of Abbotsford is seeking public input for a new cycling project that will pick up where the Salton Road Bridge project left off at Marshall Road.

The new “all ages and abilities” connection will install a neighbourhood bikeway between Salton Road and Montrose Avenue, then enhance the existing bike lanes on Bevan Avenue/Peardonville Road to Parkview Street.

The Salton Road pedestrian and cycling bridge opened in January 2019 and saw more than 12,000 crossings in its first year. At a recent council meeting, staff indicated that the bridge had recorded 14,000 users in June 2021 alone.

• bike stencils and wayfinding signage

• a cycling amenity station
