• The Bancroft Ave Greenway project seeks to provide a low-stress Class I multi-use path on the existing Bancroft Avenue median from 73rd Avenue to 103rd Avenue. This will involve dedicated bicycle signals at all intersections and new pedestrian-scale lighting. In addition, this project will install new wayfinding signage, benches, landscaping and spaces for people to meet or picnic. This project is a result of community engagement for multiple planning efforts and was previously submitted to the ATP Cycle 5 grant.
• The 73rd Ave Active Routes to Transit project will connect three transit hubs by upgrading existing Class II bike lanes to Class II Buffered bike lanes. This will provide more separation from motor vehicles. This project will also install two concrete protected intersections at International Blvd and Bancroft to provide spaces for bicyclist and pedestrians to wait and shorten their crossing distance. In addition, there will be a new direct connection to Coliseum BART by linking the bikes lanes to a Neighborhood Bike route south of International Blvd.
