The 17th Street – 19th Street corridor is an important connection for bicyclists and pedestrians in our community, providing direct access to three community parks and the People Trail at each end. Previous public input has highlighted the importance of this corridor for both transportation and recreation. However, safety improvements are needed in order to make this critical east-west connection comfortable for bicyclists and pedestrians of all ages and abilities.

In order to improve this corridor for bicycle and pedestrian travel, and to enhance the character of the street, the City is considering implementing one of two possible bicycle facilities along the full length of the corridor: (1) A bicycle boulevard or (2) A sidepath.

Watch the video below to learn more about the bicycle boulevard and sidepath options and how these improvements could be implemented along the 17th Street – 19th Street corridor.

After watching the video, please take a short survey at the link below to provide your feedback. 

Provide your feedback about the improvement options in this SURVEY

The survey will be available between October 27, 2020 and November 25, 2020.
