Cycle paths

Over the years, to ensure safe and enjoyable cycling, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has developed a network of bike paths that now totals 56.7 km.

A network from one end of the City to the other

The entire bike path network is asphalted. It is accessible to all—walkers, joggers and inline skaters. It crosses several neighbourhoods, connecting parks, schools, grocery stores, shops, etc.

Planned work for 2023

  • A multi-use link from Waterlily Street to Narcissus Park along the railroad tracks is planned for 2023.

  • An off-street multi-use path on Valois Street between Harwood Road and 8th Avenue will be constructed this year.

  • The City received financial assistance from the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal for the development of an active transportation study in the TOD sector of the Vaudreuil station. A consultant was hired to conduct a diagnostic study and propose optimizations over time. Over the next few years, these proposals will gradually be implemented. Interventions will be carried out as early as 2023.

Sections developed in 2022

  • Work to rehabilitate the road surface of the Besner Linear Park bicycle path was completed this fall. The City received financial assistance equivalent to 50% of the value of the work, up to a maximum of $104,610, from the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ).

  • Work to rehabilitate the road surface of Besner Drive, between Place du Chevalier and Louise-Josephte Street, was completed in September. For this project, the City received financial assistance equivalent to 50% of the value of the work, up to a maximum amount of $104,610, from the MTQ.

  • The bike lane on de la Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard has been extended from 33 to 37 de la Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard (approximately from the Holiday Inn to Carlos & Pepe's). From this bike lane, users can get to de la Canardière Avenue via a safe multi-purpose path built on the commercial site.

  • An off-street bike lane was constructed along Rue des Muguets in early summer, connecting the pedestrian tunnel to Paul-Gérin-Lajoie Road.

  • A multi-use path on the west side of Boulevard de la Gare was constructed in July between Maurice-Richard and Édouard-Lalonde streets.

  • Work was done in August to create a pedestrian pathway in Vaudreuil Bay, between Paul-Gérin-Lajoie Park and Maison-Valois Park. This future gravel path will allow users to walk close to nature.

  • This fall, the City built a multi-purpose path between Saint-Michel and Léger streets. This new section allows users to travel from the Chenaux sector to Saint-Charles Avenue in complete safety.

Good practice and compliance with rules

The Highway Safety Code applies to everyone, and respecting it is essential to make sharing the road with other users as pleasant as possible. Unforeseen events can occur: people emerging between two cars, doors opening,  motorists who forget to use their turn signals, etc. It is therefore important to pay attention and stay focused on the road. It is also important to remain vigilant at intersections by making eye contact with other road users. Caution is especially advised at intersections where right turns are allowed on a red light. Finally, to anticipate dangers and unforeseen events on the road, travelling at a moderate speed, between 15 and 20 km / h, is highly recommended in order to have enough time to react.
