A project to make a busy downtown Waterloo street more bicycle friendly is expected to get underway next week.

On Monday (July 10, 2017), the city council approved a plan to reduce Park Avenue’s driving lanes from four to two. The change will allow space for two bicycle lanes to be added to the street, one going in each direction with the traffic flow.

Under the plan, metered parking spaces on both sides would be moved about eight feet closer to the center line. The space beside the curb where vehicles currently park would become the bicycle lanes.

When the project is complete, the bicycle corridor will connect Lincoln Park on the east side of the Cedar River to Washington Park on Waterloo’s west side. The bicycle lanes would run along each side of Park Avenue between Franklin and South streets.
