City of Winston-Salem’s Bicycle Master Plan Draft Ready for Review April 4
Consultants updating the city’s bicycle master plan will present their draft and collect feedback at a public input session from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4, at the Salem Lake Marina Center, 815 Salem Lake Road, Winston-Salem.
A presentation on the draft will be held at the start of the meeting. Afterwards, attendees will be able to review the draft in detail, ask questions and provide their thoughts to DOT staff.
Detailed maps and charts will be available for inspection, showing specific streets and the type of improvement (e. g. bike lanes) the consultants recommend for each. Computers also will be available for viewing the draft and leaving comments.
The draft plan’s recommendations were developed based on input from public meetings held last year, along with roadway analysis and guidance by the Bicycle Master Plan steering committee members.
Residents who cannot attend the meeting can view the draft plan and leave their thoughts online at WSBikePLAN.com. Comments will be accepted through April 30.
The previous bicycle master plan, adopted in 2005, is being updated to reflect recent changes to development and traffic patterns and to take advantage of new ways to accommodate bicycles, such as buffered bike lanes and cycle tracks, which have been developed over the past decade. As with the current plan, the updated master plan will set priorities for bicycle policies and infrastructure improvements.
The city will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who want to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services or the assistance of a Spanish interpreter should contact Adolfo Briceno at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-734-1225 as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made.
