Gibsons Connector 2021

In keeping with its long-term vision to improve our pedestrian and cycling network, the Town has completed the connector route between Upper Gibsons and Lower Gibsons.

In 2018, a low gradient, multi-use pathway was constructed along one section of Gibsons Way, as well as an at-grade bike lane and separated sidewalk along another section, to create a connector between Lower Gibsons and Upper Gibsons. (See red arrows on map, above.)

In 2021, we completed the connector project by constructing a downhill bike lane between School Road and North Fletcher Road (as indicated by the yellow arrows) and modifying North Fletcher Road so that it is more accessible for all user groups (green arrows).

This provides cyclists with a more gentle route when riding from Upper Gibsons to Lower Gibsons (as compared to using School Road).
