Phase I Pilot Projects

Phase I Projects Overview

The Phase I pilot projects are installed at the following locations to test bicycle innovations. The city continues to collect data and user feedback to evaluate the designs.

Next Steps

Based on the Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) and City Council direction, the city is moving forward with the next steps for the Phase I pilot projects detailed below:

Spruce Street Buffered Bike Lanes
Next Steps: Maintain as-is. Formally establish this facility as part of the transportation network.

University Avenue Back-In Angled Parking
Next Steps: Keep as-is and continue to evaluate the corridor through the end of 2016.

Baseline Road Protected Cycle Track
Next Steps: Remove concrete parking blocks along existing pilot project segment. Extend the bollards east to Mohawk Drive to provide a continuous protected bike lane to the shopping center. Before the protected bike lanes are extended to Mohawk Drive, initial bike count data along Baseline will be collected. Pilot Project evaluation to monitor modified treatment will continue.

University Avenue Parking-Protected Bike Lanes
Next Steps: In March 2016, the parking-protected bike lanes were converted back to the buffered bike lane configuration. 

Additional Phase I projects include dashed bike lanes, a bike box, a multi-way boulevard, and shared street. The evaluation process for these projects is ongoing.

For detailed information about the staff recommendations, including key findings for each initial Phase I project, please see the Jan. 19 City Council Memo pdf
