Provide Feedback on the Proposed Bicycle and Pedestrian Networks!

The Phase 2 web map is now closed for comment. Thank you for your input! You can still review the proposed networks below. Draft priorities and recommendations will be posted for your comments in the fall.

The draft bikeway network aims to serve people of all ages and abilities. The following represent the four types of proposed bikeways:
  • Shared Use Path: paths that can be used by both bicyclists and pedestrians and are completely separate from the roadway
  • Separated Bikeway: on-street bikeways with vertical, physical separation from the adjacent lane; most common on high-speed arterials
  • Bike Lane: lanes that are painted on the street and can sometimes include a painted buffer from vehicle lanes; most common on streets with low speeds and traffic
  • Bike Boulevard: shared lane bikeways accompanied by speed calming measures like speed humps; most common on local streets

What Are Pedestrian Priority Areas?

Pedestrian priority areas provide access to important destinations such as schools, parks, transit hubs, and commercial areas. These are generally the areas of the city that see the most people walking. The City will prioritize these areas for safety enhancements and complete streets projects.

Some examples of pedestrian safety and comfort improvements include:

  • Pedestrian Scramble: traffic signal configuration that stops all vehicle traffic and allows pedestrians to cross an intersection in all directions
  • Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon: type of traffic signal designed for safe pedestrian crossings at locations with limited vehicle traffic
  • Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon: a warning device used to alert drivers to yield to crossing pedestrians through rapidly flashing lights
  • Wide and Smooth Sidewalks: pedestrian pathways that allow for comfortable and safe passage for pedestrians of all ages and abilities
