CRASH DATA HIGHLIGHT:
4 bicycle crashes, 4 pedestrian crashes
This project will enhance the existing parking protected bicycle lane with a variety of improvements including hardening existing buffers and intersection islands, expanding the use of the protected intersection design, and wrapping the protected bike lane around loading zones between Virginia Street and West Street.
This project envisions providing concrete buffers with bollards to provide a high level or protection for bicyclists. It is important to note that the section from Sierra Street to Lake Street may require a different treatment (i.e., painted buffers with removeable bollards) to accommodate special events. In order to enhance sight distances and proactively improve safety, up to 41 parking spaces near driveways may need to be eliminated. Providing additional sight distance in these areas will enhance safety for people walking, biking, and driving as well as provide a space for new bicycle or scootershare parking areas.
Evans Ave. to Keystone Ave.
Curb-Protected Bike Lane (harden existing section)
Included Conceptual Intersection Enhancements
- 5 Protected Intersections
- Crossbike Markings
- Curb Extensions
- Pedestrian Islands
- Improved safety and comfort for cyclists
- Improved visibility and accessibility for pedestrians
- Potential for additional bike and scooter parking in driveway clear zones
Probable loss near driveways where hardening of separated bike lanes occurs (bus stop locations could potentially be relocated to overlap and minimize parking loss): (10 stalls) between Virginia and Evans / (11 stalls) between Ralston and West / (15 stalls) between Keystone and Ralston
Possible loss of parking near Arlington where approach angles are extended (estimated 5 stalls)
