University Drive Restriping Results in New Bike Facilities
Portions of University Drive south of Cooper Drive and from Huguelet Avenue to Woodland Avenue were recently restriped, changing the lane configurations to add bike lanes, vertical signage and sharrows (shared lane markings indicating shared usage for bikes and motorized vehicles).
These changes are designed to extend the existing bicycle lanes on University Drive further south and connect gaps in the campus and city’s existing bicycle routes. Visit the campus bicycle facility map (PDF) for a comprehensive look at the campus bicycle network.
In the area south of Cooper Drive, the lane reconfiguration also resulted in the addition of *47 employee parking spaces, with *22 along the west side and *25 on the east.
*A few spaces were removed to improve sight visibility for vehicles turning.
Members of the campus community are encouraged to tune into 1700 AM (WQKH 253) to hear campus parking and transportation information. The station broadcasts 24 hours, 7 days a week.
