Map of Cycling Infrastructure
Below is a map of cycling infrastructure representing Hamilton’s past, present, and future. The map is structured on layers, in different colours, that demonstrate the connections that currently exist and those planned to be added in the future. This map was contributed by downtown community member Chris Ritsma.
Below is some additional information for some of the map’s layers. Use the legend on the map to determine which colours correspond to which layers. You can toggle the layers on and off to show some or all of the information.
Multi Use Trail – this is taken directly from a layer created by the City of Hamilton. The layer has the least detail regarding starts and finishes because it is information pulled directly from the City of Hamilton.
Post 2020 – These are routes that were listed as projects that are planned for after 2020 according to the infrastructure updates provided to the Hamilton Cycling Committee. This layer still requires updates as there are now a full list of planned projects for 2021.
2020 Planned Install – These are routes that were listed as planned for 2020 according to the infrastructure updates provided to the Hamilton Cycling Committee. This layer still requires updates as 2020 has concluded and various projects were not completed and pushed back to 2021.
2019 Planned/Completed – These are routes that were planned to be completed in 2019 according to the infrastructure updates provided to the Hamilton Cycling Committee. They were already completed by the time the information was received. This layer still requires updates as 2019 has concluded and some projects may not have been completed.
Cycling Master Plan – This layer includes the majority of the planned projects contained in the Cycling Master Plan. This is a fairly accurate representation of what cycling infrastructure in Hamilton would look like if the current Cycling Master Plan were to be carried out. At it’s current pace, based on the current rate of installation, this plan will complete around 2040-2045, though the City has not provided a definite estimate.
