Bikeway Traffic Control Guidelines for Canada (Second Edition) (2012)


Bikeway Traffic Control Guidelines for Canada outlines the appropriate traffic control for the installation of signs and pavement markings on bikeways and contains diagrams of typical installations. Many of the guidelines may be applicable to both on-road and off-road bikeways.

This 118-page document was produced with the intention of providing guidance in the application of bicycle-related traffic control devices on bikeways that are within the public right of way. Signs and pavement markings must be designed carefully and installed properly to maximize their effectiveness. It is important that agencies responsible for the application of these guidelines use sound engineering judgement and principles when implementing bicycle-related traffic control devices.

These guidelines are expected to evolve over time, depending on prudent engineering judgement, experimentation and testing which is anticipated to take place in an effort to continue addressing the needs of cyclists in Canada.
