The construction of the Murray Street Bike Path Extension (Phase 1) has been completed and the path is now open for use. Pathway lighting is scheduled to be installed by June 2019.
This two-way asphalt bike path connects Electronic Avenue to Hugh Street. It is now more comfortable, safer, and more enjoyable for recreational cyclists to travel along Murray Street.
Phase Two, the construction of the remaining portion of the bike path from Hugh Street to the Moody Street Overpass, is included in the City’s capital plan for 2019.
Phase One of the Murray Street Bike Path Extension will:
- create a safe and accessible off-street route for recreational cyclists;
- improve safety by improving visibility for cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers at the entrance to the off-leash dog park;
- provide a new walkway into the PoMo Rotary Sk8 Park; and
- add landscaping features.

Start construction, which is expected to be completed in March 2019
The Murray Street Bike Path Extension was approved by Council in May 2016 as part of the City’s capital budget. You can read the report here. It is jointly funded by the City of Port Moody and TransLink. The Murray Street Bike Path Extension addresses one of Council’s strategic priorities – moving people – by creating a safe, off-street route for recreational cyclists and connecting users to Moody Centre via the Moody Street Overpass.
