Taking A Spin In the Town of Caledon
The Region of Peel is has made its community more cyclist-friendly using investments from the Canada Community-Building Fund.
In 2021, the municipality added paved shoulders on Olde Base Line Road between Heart Lake Road and Kennedy Road in the Town of Caledon to be used as cycling paths.
This addition lengthens the Town’s existing bicycle route, promoting active living and outdoor exercise and provides an alternative transportation route for residents.
Upgrades in this area included paving a two-metre-wide area of the shoulder for riders, adding a painted buffer to separate the paved shoulder from vehicular traffic, adding signage to identify that section of the road as a dedicated bike lane, and adding directional arrows to connect the Town of Caledon’s adjacent routes along Kennedy and Heart Lake Roads.
The construction of these cyclist-friendly paved shoulders will make it much safer for residents and tourists to ride the roadways in Caledon.
