Thank you to everyone who provided input to inform the design for the phase 1 multi-use path from Albert Street to Moody Street, part of the St. Johns Street Redesign Project. City staff presented a report, including a public engagement summary and project recommendations, at the June 28, 2022 Council meeting.

The information below was provided as part of our public engagement process in 2022. For up-to-date information on the phase 1 multi-use path, please visit portmoody.ca/stjohns.

The timeline for engagement on phase 2 (Moody Street to Ioco Road) of the St. Johns Redesign Project has not been determined yet. We'll post information to this page as soon as it becomes available.


A new multi-use path is the first phase of the St. Johns Street Redesign Project. The St. Johns Street Redesign Project is intended to make St. Johns Street more comfortable and convenient for people to use active and sustainable methods of transportation.

About the project
During public engagement for the Master Transportation Plan (MTP) in 2017, our community indicated that it was not easy to walk, cycle, or access transit along section of St. Johns Street. The strategies and actions of the MTP identified the need to widen the sidewalk, provide safe and accessible locations for pedestrians to cross the road, and build bicycle amenities that appeal to people of all ages and abilities.

This St. Johns Street Redesign Project will be split into two phases. The first phase is focused on the west section, between Albert Street and Moody Street. The east section, between Moody Street and Ioco Road, will be phase two of the project.

Phase one: multi-use path

The first phase of the project focuses from Albert Street to Moody Street and features the construction of a multi-use path that connects to our existing walking and cycling paths, and provides off-street access to transit.

A multi-use path, also known as a shared-use or mixed-use path, is a path that supports multiple modes of recreation and transportation such as walking and cycling. A multi-use path typically has a hard surface and is separated from traffic, and may include features such as benches, rest stops, and bike racks.

Two options are being considered for the section of the path between Kyle Street and Grant Street:

Option 1
The first option is to continue the multi-use path within the City boulevard, between on-street parking and the existing storefront sidewalk. This option accommodates all ages and abilities, including children, by providing a wide path with ample space to move and pass.


Option 2
The second option is a widened sidewalk in front of the businesses and a two-directional bike path. This option can reduce potential accidents between cyclists and pedestrians.

Additional project improvements include:

  • curb bulges and raised crosswalks on select intersections with side streets and St. Johns Street;
  • intersection improvements on Moody Street at St. Johns Street; and
  • landscaping along St. Johns Street.
