Alder Street Corridor Review, 2014

A study is complete to review opportunities to improve Alder Street.  Consideration is being given to how to best balance Alder Street’s role as one of the primary north-south routes and provide safe access to the many single-family homes in the area.  The following opportunities will also be considered: improving sidewalks; better accommodating bicycles; upgrading bus stops; and finding the balance of existing land use and vehicles traveling along Alder Street.

The City has hired Boulevard Transportation Group, a Vancouver Island based transportation consulting firm, to assist the City with this process.

The City held an open house on March 12, 2014.  If you missed the open house, or would like a reminder of the material that was presented, see a link to the poster boards below.  A summary of the comments received during the open house is attached below.

Master Transportation Plan, 2012Reports Plans Studies Master Transportation Plan

In 2012, in conjunction with the Sustainable Official Community Plan, the City completed a Master Transportation Plan with Urban Systems Ltd. Since the 2004 MTP was completed, there have been a number of significant policy changes within Campbell River and externally that have placed an increasing emphasis on sustainability. The Master Transportation Plan is intended to help shape Campbell River's transportation investments and programs over the next 25 years and beyond. This process is important to ensure that transportation investments work towards achieving the City's strategic vision and community goals, and make the best use of available resources.

The City plans to update the 2012 Master Transportation Plan, in late 2019. Stay tuned for updates. The City will gather information from the public. The Master Transportation Plan is a long-range plan that shapes walking, cycling, transit and road improvement projects over the next 25 years. This will be your chance to provide input into shaping Campbell River's transportation future.  

Transit Future Plan, 2011Reports Plans Studies Transit Future Plan

Transit has tremendous potential to contribute to more economically vibrant, livable, and sustainable communities.  The need to realize this potential in the Campbell River region is increasingly important because of factors such as climate change, population growth, an aging demographic and mobility for individuals who do not have access to a private automobile.  Projected future growth in both Campbell River and the surrounding area will place increasing pressure on the existing transportation system.

The Master Transportation Plan (see above) and the Transit Future Plan envision the City of Campbell River's transit network 25 years from now and describes the services, infrastructure and investments that are needed to get there.
