“Wheels on Windsor” Pilot Coming to Narberth Pilot will feature temporary protected bikeway along Windsor Avenue
(Narberth, PA) — Narberth Borough is partnering with Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and Narberth Cycling Club to bring a 10-day protected bikeway pilot to Narberth. It will demonstrate features of “complete streets” design (i.e. streets that accommodate all users and improve mobility).
Starting November 20th, Narberth residents and visitors will experience and observe temporary roadway improvements along Windsor Avenue, spanning two blocks from Forrest Avenue to Grayling Avenue.
The pilot will include installation of a two-way protected bikeway along the north curb of Windsor Avenue, temporary removal of the left-turn lane at Narberth Avenue, and enhanced signage and pavement markings to alert drivers to yield to people walking and biking at intersections.
The demonstration will provide an opportunity to:
(1) test ideas with minimal cost and minimal use of Borough resources (2) collect data related to travel speeds, vehicle counts, and bicycle counts (3) gather community feedback
The pilot is the first step toward implementation of Narberth’s Comprehensive Plan bicycle network goals, and builds on the success of the annual NarbEarth Day protected bikeway demonstration.
The outcomes of the pilot will help guide priorities and areas of focus for future pilots throughout Narberth. The pilot will also aid in future planning of permanent roadway improvements to reduce speeding, increase comfort, and enhance safety for all who live, work, and play in Narberth.
All are invited to experience the Wheels on Windsor pilot and complete the user survey starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 20, and available until 8 a.m. on Monday, November 30.
