Brockville was one of 37 communities to be granted up to $325,000 over two years in the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program, a key piece of Action Plan 1.0 of #CYCLEON: Ontario’s Cycling Strategy.  The program received about 150 expressions of interest, of which about 50 were invited to submit full applications.  Projects were judged on “improving connections between local cycling networks, promoting safety, enabling recreation and tourism, encouraging innovation, research and data collection, supporting partnerships and improving awareness of cycling as a viable transportation mode.”  Projects are being funded up to 50% of total cost, over two years, “to install or improve on-road cycling lanes, off-road cycling and walking paths, cycling-specific traffic signals and signs, active transportation bridges and bike racks.”
