The Lake Avenue Bicycle Master Plan project will safely connect neighborhoods and people to jobs, schools and much more.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (May 17, 2019) –
The City of West Palm Beach continues to roll out its initiative to enhance mobility choices and improve public safety throughout the City with the expansion of its Bicycle Master Plan on Lake Avenue. The Lake Avenue Bicycle Master Plan project will safely connect neighborhoods and people to jobs, schools, parks, businesses and the downtown.
Construction, which began in April, will offer miles of new, marked north and southbound bicycle lanes on Lake Avenue, from Maddock Street to Southern Boulevard. Project improvements also include road resurfacing, sidewalks and ADA ramps at intersections. Construction followed public input meetings, discussions and bi-lingual communications.
Project construction is in two phases:
Lake Ave. shared bike lanes with additional safety markings.
- Phase 1: Maddock Street to Southern Boulevard, which is expected to be complete in late May;
- Phase 2: Southern Boulevard to Belvedere Road, which is set to begin this summer.
The City is nearing completion of 50 miles of bicycle network. The City of West Palm Beach offers convenient and safe options for people who chose alternative forms of transportation. The Bicycle Master Plan works in concert with Vision Zero, a strategy to eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while promoting safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.
