Complete Streets – PB Pathway

beautifulPB‘s complete streets efforts are currently focused on PB Pathways, a network of safe neighborhood routes encouraging people to walk, bike or skate to their destinations with traffic calming measures and other features to improve safety.

PB Pathways routes will be implemented in phases. In 2015, Phase I routes had installation of pavement wayfinding markers and destination signage. Curb ramps and enhanced crosswalks were also installed in some locations.

New in early 2016, North PB buffered bike lanes on Cass Street.

In February 2016, bike lanes and street repaving came to Cass St. in North PB. Eventually, bike lanes will extend south on Cass St. to Reed Ave. Improvements will continue as funding becomes available and staging with other road work allows.

New flashing lights and painted crosswalks at busy intersections in the beach areas.

Pavement markers, signage and road striping are generally easier to implement as compared to other traffic calming measures that require engineering studies and/or infrastructure improvements. See the link below for the map of Phase I and Phase II routes approved by the PB Planning Group, in collaboration with beautifulPB and other EcoDistrict Partners.
