Make room for bikes on Boulevard Général Jacques

Make room for bikes on Boulevard Général Jacques
After some construction and necessary road painting, Boulevard Général Jacques is ready for the test phase of its construction project! Automobile traffic is now reduced to two lanes, and a bicycle lane was added between the Avenue des Saisons and the roundabout l’Etoile. Six months of a full-scale trial have now begun!

An official traffic count was effectuated before the test phase started. Other evaluations will take place in the coming weeks. If necessary, the current layout will be modified.  

On the long term, this reconstruction project aims to give the Boulevard Général Jacques a more pleasant, urban appeal. It is an effort to create a space where every commuter has his or her spot. This project also helps with tram circulation, notably around the difficult intersection at Avenue Buyl. Pedestrians will enjoy wide sidewalks with special handicapped access. The bike lane is located directly on the street. After the test phase, however, it will probably be moved on to the sidewalks.
