Pathways for Cyclist-Market Connections

To elevate the bicycling community in Madison, Wisc., priority must be given to citizens traveling toward multifunctional destinations, including farmer’s markets.

The use of temporary bike lane barriers is helpful for short term events and long-term testing. This dual function should not only increase bike traffic to the market, thereby reducing automobile access, but provide data for permanent bike paths. Students will work in positions of research to planning.

The Pathways for Cyclist-Market Connections is sustainable in the results of the temporary bike lanes showing need for new bikes lanes, added cyclist comfort and additional access to fresh food. Successful community engagement is also a key element of the project’s longevity.
