Long Beach separated bikeways
The City of Long Beach was recently ranked third in terms of having the most miles of bicycle infrastructure per square mile among the 52 largest cities in the United States, according to the Alliance for Biking and Walking. The City’s grant-funded investments in bicycling infrastructure have led to a doubling of bicycle riding since annual bike counts began in 2008.
The Downtown Separated Bikewanes grand opening and celebration will be held Saturday, April 23, 2011 on The Promenade at Broadway & 3rd Street.
Construction was recently completed on more than two miles of separated bike lanes going east on Broadway and west on 3rd Street, between Alamitos Avenue and Golden Avenue.
Long Beach will soon become the first Southern California city to have separated bikeways in its downtown area, designed to help cyclists and vehicles share the road more safely.
Construction on more than two miles of separated bike lanes on Broadway (heading east) and 3rd Street (heading west), between Alamitos Avenue and Golden Avenue, is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 31, 2011.
