Draft concepts for bicycle improvements along N. Seventh (Huron to Miller) have been prepared. Concepts range in impact to existing parking and availability of dedicated bicycle space. Review the concepts described below.  NOTE: Draft concepts are subject to change pending additional engineering analysis, public input, stakeholder feedback (including MDOT) and other considerations.  The implementation timeframe for the selected improvement will depend on its complexity, cost, and required approvals.

Additional Concept 1 details are available here. NOTE: may load slowly.

Description:

  • Bike Lane and Buffer – West Side
  • Share the Road Arrows (Sharrows) – East Side
  • Maintain East Side Parking

Considerations:

  • Technical feasibility has been confirmed;
  • Does not require MDOT approval as shown;
  • Opportunity to extend bike lanes to intersection may exist. See notes for concept 3 and 4 related to lane drop;
  • Near-term implementation timeframe.

CONCEPT 2

Additional Concept 2 details are available here. NOTE: may load slowly.

Description:

  • Bike Lane and Buffer – West Side
  • Bike Lane and Buffer Transitions to Share the Road Arrows (Sharrows) –East Side
  • Maintain East Side Parking North of Willow Street

Considerations:

  • Technical feasibility has been confirmed;
  • Does not require MDOT approval as shown;
  • Opportunity to extend bike lanes to intersection may exist. See notes for concept 3 and 4 related to lane drop
  • Near-term implementation timeframe.

CONCEPT 3

Additional Concept 3 details are available here. NOTE: may load slowly.

Description:

  • Bike Lane and Buffer – West and East Side
  • Remove all Parking

Considerations:

  • Technical feasibility has not yet been determined for this concept as shown;
  • MDOT approval may be required for changes to vehicle turn lanes;
  • This concept could be pursued with bike lane tapers as shown in concept 1 and 2;
  • Mid-term implementation timeframe.

CONCEPT 4

Additional Concept 4 details are available here. NOTE: may load slowly.

Description:

  • Bi-directional Bike Lanes (Cycle Track) on East Side
  • Remove all Parking

Considerations:

  • Technical feasibility has not yet been determined;
  • MDOT approval may be required for changes to vehicle turn lanes and/or signal phasing;
  • This option may not be feasible if vehicle turn lanes cannot be removed at Huron and Miller and/or bicycle signal cannot be added;
  • Long-term implementation timeframe
