Bicycle Boulevards

bboulevard12avesignCity Commission Strategic Initiative 5.1 calls for the implementation of infrastructure improvements for bicycle and pedestrian use, including expansion of the transportation network with the addition of sidewalks, trails and other enhancements that facilitate access and mobility.

City Commission funded $200,000 in FY13 for the implementation of low cost solutions that enhance the multimodal system, such as bike boulevards and connectors.

Four bicycle boulevards will be created on W 12th Street, N 3rd Avenue, NE Boulevard, and E 7th Street.  These facilities include features such as enhanced signage and markings and video detection at signalized intersections.
