June 29, 2017 – ACHD Roadways to Bikeways Input session July 10th at 6 pm. ACHD auditorium at 3775 Adams St., Garden City.

ACHD is updating the 2009 Roadways to Bikeways Bike Master Plan. The plan originally identified opportunities to enhance and expand the existing on-street bicycle network. It’s time for an update!
We want to make sure everyone has a comfortable bicycle route, from kids biking to the pool, to experienced cyclists commuting to work.
We need you!
Over the past few months, we have been working with the community to gather input on the plan’s goals and objectives, comfort rankings and bike route gaps. Now it’s time to discuss the prioritization of identified projects.
Please join us on July 10, 2017 to participate in our July Bicycle Advisory Committee meeting where we’ll be discussing this update and gathering input from the community.
Questions?

June 7, 2017 – ACHD East End Bike and Ped. Plan Needs More Input

ACHD needs your input and so do we. At the EENA annual meeting, in April, ACHD collected feedback from all of those who participated on what roads needed sidewalks, better bike access, or additional safety measures put in place. The next step was to set up some “hot spots” of where to focus their efforts.  But they need a bit more feedback from you before they move forward.

If you use, live by, or are affected by the following intersections then please try to attend their information collecting sessions, click here for ACHD flyer. Just look for the ACHD Commuteride Van at the specific location at the designated date/time.

  • Jefferson, McKinley, Franklin East/West Neighborhood Connection – June 14th from 6-7pm at the corner of Franklin and Pierce
