Reconfigure this street to re-establish it as an important commercial corridor. Restrict or filter through-traffic and separate transit, cycle, and pedestrian zones within the right-of-way. Prioritize stopping-and-staying activities.
Improve center-running mass transit by raising the roadbed at the transit stops to increase boarding efficiency and accessibility. See: Transit Facilities.
Vehicle traffic may be fully prohibited, restricted to certain times of day, or required to turn off after one or two blocks to manage volume and preserve pedestrian and transit priority.
Provide dedicated space within the curb zone to accommodate trees, street furniture, vendors, cycle racks, and other elements.
Add dedicated cycle lanes on both sides of the street. Separate cyclists at transit stops and provide two-stage turns at intersections to ensure cyclists do not cross in-street rails except at near 90-degree angles. See: Cycle facilities.
Provide a minimum buffer of 0.5 m from transit in each direction to avoid conflicts between cyclists and passengers boarding the transit.
Place transit stop amenities behind the cycle lanes to offer shelter for passengers while maintaining a continuous clear path for cyclists. See: Cycle Facilities.
Where cycle lanes encounter transit stops, ramp lanes up to sidewalk level to allow accessible transit boarding.
Provide distinct markings on cycle lanes at transit stops to indicate crossing paths with transit passengers.
Restrict loading and deliveries to off-peak hours.
