King Street Streetscape
Phase II (Bridgeport Rd. to Elgin St.)
Construction on Phase Two of the King Street Streetscape project – between Bridgeport Road and Elgin Street – was completed in October 2019.
Bike Lane Enhancements
In February 2019, Regional Council approved enhancements to the bike lanes, which will include the placement of additional signage and markings as well flexible bollards on both sides of King Street where vehicles have been encroaching into the bike lanes. These signs, markings and bollards were installed in the summer and fall of 2019.
Remember – No Parking on the Bike Lanes
For the safety of our cycling community, everyone is reminded not to park on these new cycling lanes. The City of Waterloo will be enforcing the no-parking bylaw along the new streetscape now that the bike lanes are complete and open for cycling.
There are many parking options in UpTown, and we encourage guests to review our Parking map to find a parking spot.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation as we strive to make UpTown a walkable, bikeable and safe place to live, play and work.
