Provencher Protected Bike Lanes

The Provencher Protected Bike Lanes project would narrow the median on Provencher to make space for protected bike lanes and wider boulevards along Provencher. The wider boulevards could be dedicated to expanded patio space or additional landscaping features to improve the pedestrian experience along Provencher Boulevard.
