Downtown-University Protected Bike Lane Network – Phase 2

Phase 2 is currently underway for the Downtown-University Protected Bike Lane Network. Phase 2 will connect the existing protected bike lanes to Varsity Drive near Doak Campbell Stadium along Pensacola Street and St. Augustine Street. Both streets are currently painted with buffered bike lanes. As work continues, green striping will be added. Physical barrier separations and wayfinding signage will be installed later in the fall.

Learn more about both phases of the Protected Bike Lane Network.

St. Marks Trail Extension

At the June 22, 2016 City of Tallahassee Commission meeting, the City Commission voted to approve an agreement that will provide an opportunity to extend the existing St. Marks Trail north to Lake Bradford Road near the Gaines Street intersection. The City Commission also directed that funding be provided in the upcoming budget to fully fund the construction of the trail and be completed by the time the apartment complex is completed.
