Next Steps

Based on direction from City Council, the city removed the concrete parking blocks along the existing the pilot project segment and will complete the following refinements beginning the week of Monday, July 18:

  • Bollards from 30th Street to 37th will be shifted from every 30 feet to every 60 feet to reduce visual impacts.  
  • Protected bike lanes will be extended from 37th Street to Mohawk Drive, and will include installation of bollards to provide a continuous protected bike connection between the University of Colorado Boulder campus, Bear Creek multi-use path and the Meadows on the Parkway Shopping Center.  

Additionally, Pilot Project evaluation to monitor modified treatment will continue.

Background

What is a cycle track?
A cycle track is an on-street bicycle lane that is physically separated from vehicle traffic by flexible bollards, parking, planters, or a curb. These lanes allow for a more comfortable and protected ride adjacent to traffic. 

Where can I go to test these?
Central Boulder: Baseline Road between 30th and 35th streets

How can I share my feedback about a Living Laboratory treatment? 
The community can share feedback through Inquire Boulder, or via email.

When were these installed?
September 2013 (Phase 1, Wave 1)
