Bike Lanes on 208th Street

In some good news, the City of Langley is currently repaving 208th Street from Fraser Highway to 48th Avenue. Initial there was going to be no improvement to the awful bike path on the west site of the road. Due to Infrastructure Stimulus Funding, the old bike path will be replaced with proper bike lanes from at least 52nd Avenue to 48th Avenue. I’m checking to see if the bike lanes will extend to Fraser Highway and the Langley Bypass, as it could tie into the bike lanes being built on the new bridge in that area.

It is good to see bike lanes being added as new road projects are being built in the City. Today Langley City is a patchwork of cycling infrastructure, and it will take a financial commitment from City Council to see any continuous bike lanes through the City.
