UA Pedestrian and Bike Study Open House
Parking & Transportation Services and the Pima Association of Governments will present a series of recommendations for a campus biking and walking plan in a public workshop.
Community members will have an opportunity to review a draft of a study on the matter and offer input on its recommendations. Parking is free in the lot adjacent to the building.
PTS and PAG have been working together for several months to come up with a feasible walking and biking plan for the UA campus. The groups held walking and biking audits and a public meeting in January to get community input on where and how improvements could be made.
A biking and walking plan would help ensure better safety and access for bicyclists and pedestrians as they navigate their way around each other.
For example, one recommendation is to position Fifth Street as a gateway to the University across Euclid Avenue, so bicycles don't have to contend with streetcar tracks.
The main goal is to find ways to prevent collisions and potential collisions between bikers and walkers.
