The Denison-Bellevue cycling route was identified in the Cycling Network Plan. The route provides a connection along quiet local streets between the existing bicycle lanes on College Street and Queen Street with a connection to the cycle tracks on Richmond Street and Adelaide Street via Augusta Avenue and Portland Street.

The previous one-way southbound operation of Denison Avenue and Bellevue Avenue did not allow cyclists to legally travel in both directions. The proposed contra-flow bike lane would allow northbound travel from Queen Street West to College Street. In addition, sharrow markings would be installed in the southbound direction.
