Public Meeting for Proposed Palm Avenue Bikeway

Will Fresno finally get a protected bikeway, like in the San Francisco photo above? They’ve been talked about in the past, including a proposed couplet on Fulton and Van Ness that never came to be. But tomorrow there will be a public meeting on a new proposed bikeway along Palm and Belmont. See the flyer:

If you can’t attend, a survey is available online:

Make sure your voice is heard! There’s been almost zero progress on bike projects in Fresno over the last five years, so this could be a much-needed push.

  1. I’m really looking forward to this, technically the first Class IV bike path will be on Maple between Shaw and Gettysburg (It’s out for bid right now based on the most recent BPAC work plan), but this will be the first proper protected bikeway on a major road in Fresno. When it gets built I plan on being there the morning of to ride it and see how traffic behaves.

    This project is one of $11 million worth of projects submitted by the city for state grant funding. Most of them are safer intersections around schools, but one is another class IV bike path on Clinton ave between First and Fresno street, INTERSECTING the future Midtown Trail route.

    1. Between Shaw and Gettysburg ? Wow a whole block! Of course the area is perfect for it, as it feeds into Fresno State, but still….

    1. You have to start somewhere. There is not enough funding to build a complete network at one time.
