The North Park | Mid-City Bikeways
will make it safer and easier for people of all ages and abilities to bike to more places within and between North Park and Mid-City communities. The bikeways consist of six segments that total 13 miles
of bike boulevards and protected bikeways. Features include traffic calming elements, safer crossings, and other streetscape enhancements that make streets more pleasant for everyone – people who bike, walk, work, and live there.
The planning phase of the project is complete; review
the executive summary. The project is now in the preliminary engineering and environmental analysis phase, which will extend into 2016.
Based on extensive analysis and community feedback, these alignments were identified as having the greatest potential to achieve the project goals:
SAFETY: Provide safe, livable complete streets that serve people of all ages and abilities.
ACCESS: Provide direct access to schools, transit, community destinations, and commercial centers.
EXPERIENCE: Design innovative facilities with appropriate separation from vehicular traffic, traffic calming elements, and end-of-trip facilities.
COMMUNITY: Be consistent with and leverage community planning efforts.
PLACEMAKING AND SUSTAINABILITY: Support placemaking, sustainability, equity, and economic development and redevelopment efforts.
