The Department of Transportation and Infrastruture Renewal recently held an open meeting to display its $5-million overhaul of Riverside Drive. Among other things, the artery will be four lanes and include two roundabouts and a median along the length of it. The province will buy land wide enough to allow for sidewalks, and it will drop the curb where pedestrian crossings are planned, but the capital city will be responsible for putting the sidewalks in. A department spokesperson said cyclists don't typically use roundabouts and no other provisions are being made for cyclists because of land constraints.
