Project Details

Lane changes are proposed on 24th Street E, between Cedar Avenue and 35W. Bike lanes are proposed on the north side of the street. Bike lanes and shared lanes are proposed on the south side of the street:

Parking changes are being explored between 11th Avenue and Bloomington Avenue on the north side. Removal of parking would allow for bike lanes between instead of shared lanes.

Other changes include proposed bicycle detection at 24th Street and Chicago Avenue. An improved bicycle wheel ramp is proposed on the 24th Street pedestrian bridge over 35W.

Bike racks will be installed along the project corridor.

Public Works will flyer the corridor 7-10 days prior to the public meetings.

July 15, 2010

Public works is collecting feedback on draft plans (pdf) for the corridor. Please provide feedback on which features and intersections should be priorities for this project. Not all features will be constructed. Cost estimates (pdf) for each feature and traffic calming examples (pdf) may help you identify priorities.

Detailed layouts (pdf) will be presented at public meetings in August. In early summer, Public Works staff met with neighborhood organizations and city council members to collect feedback on the draft plans.
