Bike / Pedestrian Plan
|The Palo Alto Bicycle & Pedestrian Transportation Plan was adopted in July 2012. The Plan identifies objectives for the expansion of bicycle and pedestrian goals for the City. The City has a goal of expanding bicycle-to-work trips by 2020 to 15%. The city's high school student population is the highest bicycle commuter group with an average of 44% of high school commuters traveling by bicycle. This is in part due to the past efforts to provide bicycle-friendly infrastructure within the community. The Bike / Pedestrian plan supports additional goals for the City to encourage life-long appreciation for bicycle commuting to support healthy living and reduce global climate change.|

Phase 1 - The Neighborhood Traffic Safety & Bicycle Boulevard Project
The Neighborhood Traffic Safety & Bicycle Boulevard Projects - Phase 1 timeframe is currently being re-evaluated. The street recently completed (in terms of construction) is Louis Road. A segment of Louis Road (between Moreno and Amarillo) will be closed from July 23-July 27 for the installation of artwork. Staff provided door hangers to the 500 adjacent properties in the affected area.
The NTSBB project is a Council-approved project to enhance local Palo Alto streets to reduce automobile speeds and to prioritize safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Phase 1 of the project broke ground in September 2017 and construction will be completed in October 2018. This seven-mile-long project will be constructed in 2000-foot-long segments (about half-a-mile) to minimize impacts to residential neighborhoods and schools.

Phase 2 of the project is in the final design phase, and construction is anticipated for late fall of 2018.
