Bryant Street Bicycle Boulevard


Project Background

The Bryant Street Bicycle Boulevard was the first Bicycle Boulevard implemented in the United States in the 1970s and is named after Ellen Fletcher, former Palo Alto Mayor and a bicycle advocate. Two projects are currently planned for Bryant Street.

  • Bryant Street Bicycle Boulevard Update(Palo Alto Avenue to East Meadow Drive)
  • Bryant Street Bicycle Boulevard Extension(East Meadow Drive to south City limits)

The Bryant Street Bicycle Boulevard Update includes reassessing the existing bicycle boulevard segment to include Sharrow roadway markings, bicycle boulevard branding signage, and considerations for additional traffic calming measures depending on community preferences.

The Bryant Street Bicycle Boulevard Extension includes expanding the bicycle boulevard to the cities southern limits at San Antonio Avenue via Nelson Drive and MacKay Drive. The project includes bicycle boulevard branding signage and enhanced roadway markings, and opportunities for traffic calming and community identity marker options.

The project includes community outreach to solicit input regarding existing conditions and possible areas for improvements.
