2020 Bike Master Plan Update - Downtown and Midtown implementation
The San Antonio Bike Plan (2011) provided a reliable foundation outlining the
purpose and need for bicycle facilities in San Antonio. As
implementation of bicycle facilities over the past few years has occurred, it
has become evident that the 2011 Bike Master Plan (BMP) requires an update to
policies and the introduction of feasibility studies to support further
implementation of micromobility
infrastructure. Specifically, language and must be developed
which addresses the implementation of road-diets, as well as when and where
parking will be restricted in order to accommodate the addition of bike
facilities. Many streets will require additional traffic operations
analysis and schematic development to determine the impacts of adding bicycle
facilities. Without this analysis, bicycle facility implementation cannot
proceed. Strengthening outreach to garner community support is also a key
element to the future success of the bicycle network.
2020 update will focus on Midtown and Downtown. In the future, other areas of
San Antonio will also be evaluated for updates to the Bicycle Master Plan.
Additionally, the City of San Antonio is developing an updated Complete Streets policy and Micromobility Toolkit to provide clear guidance on how to
achieve more complete streets and to account for all transportation modes in
planning, design, and implementation.
