#IBikeNola Bikeway - Workshop

Beginning this summer, Bike Easy is launching a series of #IBikeNola ‘pop-up’ projects to demonstrate how New Orleans streets can be made safe for everyone who uses them. Help us pick the streets and trouble spots to make safer in neighborhoods all across New Orleans, by turning a painted lane into a protected bikeway, adding crosswalks at a dangerous intersection, or a rest area at a barren transit stop. Let’s show our neighbors what works so we can build support for improved biking and walking infrastructure across the city.
The first #IBikeNola installation will be a ‘pop-up’ protected bikeway on St Bernard Avenue, between Saint Claude Avenue and Claiborne Avenue, one of the most heavily biked areas in all New Orleans. Protecting riders along this main thoroughfare will do much to improve safety and peace of mind for commuters from the 7th Ward, Gentilly, and neighborhoods alongside City Park and up to the lakefront and UNO. Installation is scheduled to begin the weekend of July 29th and will be open for use from July 31st – August 11th.
Come to our first weekly #IBikeNola Bikeway Workshop. This week we’ll begin canvassing local residents and businesses. We’ll discuss community response and prepare to canvass the rest of the planned route and the neighborhoods beyond. We’ll be handing out promotional materials to spread the word around town. Let’s do it y’all!
This Event is part of Bike Easy’s Advocacy Project.
