Over the years, to ensure safe and enjoyable cycling, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has developed a network of bike paths that now totals 45.3 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.
Sections developed in 2020
- Work being done to build a multi-use bike path on Des Nénuphars and install a footbridge for pedestrians and cyclists over Quinchien River will soon be completed. Residents in this sector will henceforth be able to safely access L’Hymne-au-Printemps school and the new school currently being built as well as stores and businesses located on the opposite side of Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard. The City received financial assistance for this particular project.
- During the summer, the City carried out major rehabilitation work on the aqueduct and sewer on Sainte-Madeleine Street. We took advantage of the opportunity to build a two-way bike path on Sainte-Madeleine Street that would allow students to travel to Sainte-Madeleine School safely. A bike lane was also added on each side of Jeannotte Street along with two pedestrian crossings—one facing the school’s main entrance and the other in front of the daycare centre. It should be noted that the mandatory stop in this sector has been moved a few metres.
- A bi-directional bike path has beenbe built on Henry-Ford Street over the summer in order to connect the existing bike path to Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard.
- An off-road bike path will be added to the North side of Valois Street, between the municipal garage and Charbonneau Street. Work is expected to take place in the Fall.
