Las Cruces will see its first Pop-up Bike Lanes this July!
Pop-up bike projects are temporary bicycle lane improvements on city streets that provide a fun way to get active and make the road safer for cyclists. Pop-up Bike Lanes are an exciting way to promote cycling, to demonstrate road design meant for both automobiles and bicycles, and to even help inform future permanent improvements.
The current project is a part of the City’s ongoing efforts to improve Active Transportation or “human-powered transportation like walking or biking” in Las Cruces. By improving Active Transportation, Las Cruces can become a healthier, safer, and overall more livable community for everyone.
The Pop-up will be located on Idaho Avenue/S. Walnut & Nevada Avenue from the intersections of Lees/Idaho to Nevada/Triviz. The Pop-up will be created with temporary barriers, signage, and lane markings. It will consist of a mix of facilities, ranging from Sharrows (temporary arrows painted on the roadway to inform motorists to share the road with bicycles) to Buffered Bike Lanes that provide more protection from motorized vehicles.
We hope through this project the community is encouraged to hop on their bikes, take a ride, and let us know what you think through an upcoming public survey!
