August 2020 Update

The project team has received and reviewed over 100 individual survey responses. Over 70% of survey respondents supported the proposed improvements. Survey respondents also expressed support for:
  • Lowering motor vehicle speeds along the bikeway route to 20-25 mph by installing speed reduction devices such as speed humps or speed cushions. 
  • Both proposed options (Caswell Avenue and Clarkson Avenue) for the routing of a north-south connection between Middle Fiskville Road and E 46th Street. 
  • Improved pedestrian facilities along the route.
  • Safety improvements for intersections and crossings.

Fall 2019: Project Open House and Survey

The project team shared a preliminary design for the proposed neighborhood bikeway route at a community open house on November 12, 2019. A project survey was available at the open house and online through December 15, 2019.
Key features of the preliminary design included:
  • New pavement markings ("sharrows") to alert people driving to expect people bicycling.
  • New wayfinding signs to guide people riding bicycles to local and regional destinations.
  • New and modified speed reduction devices (e.g., speed humps or speed cushions) to achieve lower speeds (20-25 mph)
  • Improvements to major street crossings for people walking or riding bicycles.
  • New sidewalks on E 46th Street (Red River Street to Airport Boulevard) and Bennett Avenue (43rd Street to 46th Street).
