Walkable West Palm Beach

West Palm supports US1 redesign with $2.5m grant filing

2 Comments

Yesterday was a milestone for the City of West Palm Beach: The City Commission voted unanimously to support the TCRPC application to the MPO to redesign South Dixie from Okeechobee to Albemarle.

This project is a great example of community leaders and institutions organizing to advocate for a more livable and more walkable street. Very excited to see it moving forward. Many kudos to Commissioner Paula Ryan for her leadership in this effort.

  1. “making much of the stretch more bicycle-friendly”

    Let’s hope that includes protected/separated bike lanes, not just sharrows or doorzone lanes. West Palm Beach would see a dramatic reduction in traffic during the busy tourist seasons if whole families felt confident cycling safely. And that only comes with a network of protected lanes.

    • I agree with the need for a network of protected bike lanes. I’m a big supporter of the Dutch/Danish approach. That said, im not sure this is the most important priority in this ROW. With limited space here and good slower traffic parallel routes, I think we may be better off putting a good network of bike infra on Lake/Flagler/Olive etc
