Protected Bicycle Facility Demonstration Project
This winter we will be constructing temporary separated bicycle facilities on Salzedo Street and University Drive. These temporary facilities will be protected from motorized traffic by 500 pound decorative concrete planters full of beautiful vegetation. This demonstration project will give people the opportunity to feel what it is like to ride a bike in a protected atmosphere and will beautify the area.
