Working with the City’s Department of Public Works, TO Design, LLC developed a bike routes master plan in 2013. Considerable public input went into the final plan, which included a bicycle boulevard, sharrows, bike lanes, striping and signage. Phase 1 of the plan is currently being implemented by public works personnel and is intended to facilitate bicycle travel to the City’s new CTfastrak busway stations.
An innovative feature of the plan is to covert two travel lanes of the oversized Eddie Glover Boulevard into a bicycle boulevard.
