Construction on Cherrywood bikeways starts this month

Monday, June 7, 2021 by Jonathan Lee

Safer bike routes are coming soon to the Cherrywood neighborhood. Austin Transportation is set to start construction this month on the Cherrywood Neighborhood Bikeways, the latest project from the 2016 mobility bond. The routes are planned for parts of East 34th Street, Cherrywood Road, Schieffer Avenue, and Wilshire Boulevard, with construction scheduled in three phases between now and 2024. Phase one includes immediate improvements like paint and flex posts, with concrete pedestrian islands and pinch points for cars coming in later phases. Much of the improvements are intended to slow traffic down so most people can feel comfortable riding their bikes in the middle of the street.
