By design, bicycle boulevards are intended to calm traffic by implementing signs, pavement markings and other countermeasures that encourage low volume and low speeds. These techniques make it more comfortable for people traveling by bike or foot, making this style of street safer for bicycle traffic while not restricting motor vehicles.
A bicycle boulevard is in the works for Christian Street and is planned for Water Street in the future. Click here to learn more about the Water Street project at Lancaster Engage.
