We are excited that 2019 will bring paint to pavement: connecting existing bikeway facilities and adding new infrastructure like two-way cycletracks and floating bus stops. We are steadily making progress toward being a more bicycle friendly community. We are leveraging federal transportation funds with local capital improvement funds for several on-street bike facilities. And for the first time, we have dedicated funding ($500,000) for bikeway projects in the 2019-2020 fiscal year budget.
