The Town of Peace River is developing an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) that identifies the existing and future active transportation network, with a focus on the west side of the river, where links between and within neighbourhoods are incomplete. Our goal is to enhance active transportation opportunities with improved access to and through commercial areas and community destinations. This project will provide the Town with a plan for how to prioritize, build out and improve our active transportation network over time.

Community members will benefit as we work to connect to the newly completed active modes bridge that opened in 2021 as part of the twinning of the bridges crossing the Peace River. This new bridge represents a major improvement in level of service for pedestrians, cyclists, and other active transportation modes crossing the Peace River.
