Open House this Thursday (TODAY): North University-Heritage-Rosedale N

Date: Thursday, January 30
Time: 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. (Swing by anytime!)
Place: Bryker Woods Elementary - Cafeteria
(3309 Kerbey Lane)

Proposed changes include:

Improvements for routing and navigation

New shared lane pavement markings (called share-the-road arrows or “sharrows”) to alert people driving to expect people bicycling in the street and help guide people along the bikeway route

New wayfinding signs to guide people bicycling to local and regional destinations

Study feasibility of switching stop signs to prioritize the bicycling route: Hemphill Drive (east side) at West 32nd Street and Hemphill Drive (west side) at West 33rd Street

Managing vehicle speeds and volumes

New speed reduction devices to achieve lower 20-25 mph speeds

No volume reduction is anticipated

Improvements for crossing major streets for people walking or bicycling

Intersection improvements (e.g., signal timing changes, ADA upgrades, curb extensions, detection)

New bicycle lanes for connecting across major streets:
-West 29th Street between West Guadalupe Street and Hemphill Drive with proposed localized parking restrictions
-West 34th Street between West Avenue and West Guadalupe Street with proposed parking restrictions on the north and south curbs
-West 40th Street between North Lamar Boulevard and Marathon Boulevard with proposed localized parking restrictions

Alternatives are being considered for West 31st Street/Shoal Creek Boulevard between North Lamar Boulevard and West 34th Street:
-Alternative A: A shared use path on the south curb requiring parking restrictions on the north curb, based on a concept recommended in the Urban Trails Plan
-Alternative B: A neighborhood bikeway with an eastbound bicycle/walking lane on the south curb and keep existing parking on the north curb
-Other Alternatives: Other options could include a one-way configuration of West 31st Street/Shoal Creek Boulevard, making room for a shared use path, or other combinations of Alternatives A and B
