Public meeting focuses on bicycle boulevards

Rochester Business Journal
February 10, 2014

The first of two public meetings on the city of Rochester’s plan to install boulevards for bicycles is scheduled for Tuesday at the Rochester Central Library.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Kate Gleason Auditorium at 115 South Ave.

The Rochester Bicycle Boulevard Plan is designed to create bicycle-friendly rights-of-way alongside the city’s busiest streets, city officials said.

Bicycle boulevards, also known as neighborhood greenways, are a series of inter-connected streets modified to provide cyclists with through streets.

The Tuesday meeting will include an overview of the project, a discussion of national best practices and a comparison of findings on existing conditions, officials said. It also will give the public a chance to suggest desired routes, destinations and other priorities.

Potential boulevard routes will be identified and designed following the meeting, with concepts presented during a second public meeting in June, officials said. The plan is scheduled to be in place this summer.
