The 17th Street Corridor Improvement project included:

– new sidewalks from Rotary Trail to Fitzgerald Avenue
– shorter road crossing distances and new pedestrian-controlled flashing beacons
– on-street parking maintained
– curb-protected cycle tracks from Rotary Trail to Fitzgerald Avenue
– painted, parking-protected bike lanes from Willemar Avenue to Rotary Trail
– new trees planted on 17th Street at McPhee Avenue

The new bike lanes on 17th Street help link the Rotary Trail, the 5th Street corridor, and the Fitzgerald bike lanes, increasing connectivity in Courtenay’s cycling network. With active travel options encouraging healthy lifestyles, the project was endorsed by School District No. 71, and benefits students, parents, and teachers traveling to Courtenay Elementary and connecting to other local pathways.
