    • Bike lanes with parking bays, parking restrictions, and no center striping
  • Princeton and Quentin Avenues (42nd 1/2 Street to Park Commons Drive)
    • "Share the road" bikeway with no changes to parking restrictions
  • Park Commons Drive (Quentin Avenue to West Wolfe Parkway)
    • Convert and widen north sidewalk to multi-use trail, narrow the road
  • Wolfe Park bikeway (Wolfe Parkway to Monterey Drive)
    • The alignment of the trail has been changed to follow Wolfe Parkway using existing trails. See the graphic on the invitation for more information.
  • 38th Street (Excelsior Boulevard to France Avenue)
    • Advisory bike lanes with no changes to parking restrictions.
