Scooters And One Wheels

Roundabouts, bike lanes, and scooter lanes have been proposed for $ 35 million within the Jap Parkway plan

A detailed transportation plan to redesign a significant section of the Eastern Parkway and improve its safety has been completed and made available to the public. The nearly 300-page plan, developed by Gresham Smith, includes potential upgrades to the corridor worth approximately $ 35 million, roundabouts, three-lane configurations, shared paths, and new sidewalks. The study spans 5.35 miles Eastern Parkway from Hahn Street to its eastern terminus in Cherokee Park and is broken into segments that the city can board at will (click here for the full map) and the final map was created after Gresham Smith’s project team analyzed the context of bicycle and pedestrian facilities, inventoried current landscaping and other historical design elements, conducted a traffic study, and received public feedback to the public of the need for stronger security measures on Eastern Parkway to keep people out to slow down and reduce the number of people crashes, said Mike Sewell, active director of transportation services at Gresham Smith. Here’s a look at one of the segments of the plan: Segment B (Eastern Parkway from Bardstown Road to near Baxter Avenue) This project requires a three-lane configuration with one thoroughfare lane on each side and a middle two-way lane on the left, light vehicle tracks on either side (for bikes, scooters, etc.), a north-facing path for common use and a south-facing sidewalk. Realignment of the road markings at the intersection of Eastern Parkway and Bardstown Road is also recommended. The estimated cost is between $ 4.5 million and $ 4.8 million.

The final plan comes after Gresham Smith’s project team analyzes the context of bicycle and pedestrian facilities, inventorying the current landscaping and other historical design elements, conducting a traffic study, and receiving public feedback.

The overwhelming response from the public was the need for tighter security measures on Eastern Parkway to slow people down and reduce the number of accidents, said Mike Sewell, active director of transportation services at Gresham Smith.

Here’s a look at one of the segments of the plan:

Segment B (Eastern Parkway from Bardstown Road to Baxter Avenue)

This project requires a three-lane configuration with one through lane on each side and a middle two-lane left turn, light vehicle lanes on either side (for bikes, scooters, etc.), a north-facing shared path, and south-facing sidewalk. Realignment of the road markings at the intersection of Eastern Parkway and Bardstown Road is also recommended. The estimated cost is between $ 4.5 million and $ 4.8 million.
