NOTE: This project has been postponed until 2018
The City of Port Moody will be constructing the remaining portion of the Murray Street Bike Path between Electronic Avenue and the Moody Street Overpass during late summer/early fall of 2017. The start of this work will be scheduled to avoid conflicts with the summertime enjoyment of Rocky Point Park. The bike path extension will follow the alignment of the existing sidewalk on the north side of Murray Street. The design features a mixed-use pathway, from the Moody Street Overpass to Hugh Street, that transitions into a side-by-side bicycle path and sidewalk connecting to Electronic Avenue. Once the project is completed, it will be easier, safer, and more enjoyable for recreational cyclists to travel along Murray Street.

The Murray Street Bike Path Extension has a number of benefits. The project will:
- create a safe, off-street route for recreational cyclists;
- provide direct access to the Moody Street Overpass and Moody Centre Station;
- improve safety by improving visibility for cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers at entrances to Rocky Point Park and the off-leash dog park;
- provide a new walkway into the PoMo Rotary Sk8 Park; and
- add landscaping features, including new trees.
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.
