Stassney improvements on the way

Tuesday, December 15, 2020 by Katy McElroy

The city has been working on a project to enhance safety and mobility for everyone who uses Stassney Lane, and it is now ready to start construction in spring 2021. The project design was created with input from the community and is made possible by funding from the 2016 mobility bond, Safe Routes to School programs and the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Among the planned changes, new protected bicycle lanes will be installed on Stassney Lane, creating an east-west All Ages and Abilities bikeway. Intersections will be revamped to improve safety for all modes of travel. In addition, the city will work with Capital Metro to move bus stops closer to safe pedestrian crossings at multiple locations on the corridor. Those interested in following along with the project’s progress can sign up for email updates on the project website.
