Creating Low Stress Bikeways for All Users*

Active transportation encompasses not just walkability but also bikeability and moveability. Columbus built its first separated bike lanes along Summit Street in the University District in 2016. Extending for almost 1 ½ miles, the bikeway includes a floating parking lane, bicycle signal heads, turn queue boxes, and bus waiting islands. This low-stress bikeway has been a very positive addition to the growing Columbus bikeway network, as well as for people who walk, but has not been without lessons learned and challenges in accommodating all road users.
