Establish bike boulevards to prioritize bicycling on streets with low traffic volumes and slow speeds.

Strategy 1.3.8 Details

Chapter 1Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.
Objective 3Use innovative designs to expand and enhance the bikeway network.

Strategy 8

Establish bike boulevards to prioritize bicycling on streets with low traffic volumes and slow speeds.

Use a combination of traffic calming, intersection treatments, and signage to make it easier and safer for bicyclists and pedestrians to cross intersections and discourage non-local motor vehicle traffic.

Peformance MeasureIdentify 5-10 potential locations by 2008. Establish 10 miles of bike boulevards by 2015.
Tracker NotesBegun in 2012 with the announcement that the first bike boulevard will be on Berteau Avenue from Lincoln to Clark.
