Good afternoon,

The long-awaited Bicycle Boulevard enhanced crossing at 14th & Lomas is nearing construction! The Department of Municipal Development has selected a contractor.  We do yet not have an estimated start date or lane closure information but will pass that on to you when we receive it.

For more details on the project, you can find the study and design on the Downtown Neighborhoods Area Traffic Study web page.  Please feel free to contact me and direct neighbors to me with questions!
