2020 Project List

Pedestrian Bicycle Enhancements Program

     The Pedestrian Bicycle Enhancement Program focuses on small projects that improve the safety of walking and biking throughout the City. Projects are also intended to encourage walking and biking as a sustainable transportation option and make accessing transit stops safer and easier. This includes Safe Routes to School projects which are small improvements focused on making it safer and easier for children walking and biking to school.

Safety concerns and other project ideas are submitted to Traffic Engineering throughout the year by Alders, residents, schools, and Neighborhood Resource Teams. Each requested improvement is evaluated by the staff team for the best solution and is then ranked using the criteria below.
