December 1, 2014 --  It will soon be easier to cross Downtown by bike.

Green bike lanes are being added to Second Street from Colorado to California avenues as part of the City’s Bicycle Action Plan.

In addition, Second Street will be repaved and one traffic lane in each direction will be removed to make way for the bike lanes.

The roadwork is necessary, City officials said, because of the deteriorating condition of the pavement.

The grinding of the existing asphalt will begin mid-November and take place during the day. Paving will occur at night. City officials said the job should be completed in three to four days.

One lane of traffic will remain open at all times during construction. Access to driveways will also be maintained.

The City is working to minimize any inconvenience that this project may cause. Notices are being mailed to Downtown residents and businesses impacted by the project, and construction updates will be available on the City’s website —

Those with questions or concerns should use the Project Hotline — 866.442.8415.

The City’s Bicycle Action Plan calls for infrastructure improvements to create visible, wider, green bikeways on Broadway and Main/2nd streets.

It also calls for implementing a visible “green cross” of buffered bike lanes along the most heavily used streets in the city and providing good links to all other bikeways and destinations, according to City officials.
