What are Bike Streets like for neighbors who live along the routes?
We believe the development of Bike Streets, by contrast, is more aligned with the interests of neighbors:
Parking: Build-out on Bike Streets doesn’t require any lane reductions or removal of on-street parking for cars.
Lower Volume: Volume reduction strategies that reduce cut-through traffic and lower the number of cars on neighborhood streets is something that most neighbors and bicyclists can get behind.
Lower Speed: Lowering speeds on neighborhood streets makes these streets better for neighbors, walkers, and bicyclists.
Access: Neighbors who want to ride bikes have immediate access to a low-stress network of routes that can get them to any destination in town.
