Project Benefits

The Grand Avenue Road Diet will improve safety and access for all roadway users including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders including:

  • Reduced number of lanes for pedestrians to navigate when crossing Grand Ave
  • Enhanced visibility for pedestrians crossing Grand Ave
  • Improved access and safety for bicyclists
  • Improved compliance with posted speed limits
  • Reduced conflicts and collisions for vehicles turning on to and off of Grand Ave
  • Improved safety for vehicles turning left

The two existing travel lanes in each direction will be changed to one vehicle lane and a bicycle lane each way, and a center two-way left turn lane. Please see the street cross-section below.
