Great news… the City’s Popup Pilot has been confirmed! They will be demonstrating a separated, two-way cycle track on Spokane Falls Boulevard from the north landing of the Gateway Bridge to the Cincinnati Greenway. The temporary installation will go up on Saturday, September 28th and be in place for a week. See map for details. The idea is to demonstrate how a cycle track works and if cyclists feel safer using a separated bike lane.
Help Needed! Volunteers are needed to help set up the temporary cycle track, monitor the installment throughout the week, survey users, experience the cycle track and provide feedback, and take down the installment on the last day. They are also looking for artists and creative types to help make stencils for wayfinding and beautify the project. Please sign up on this sheet if you are interested in helping.
