City Installs Bike Lane Improvements

In June, the City began the installation of various on-road bicycle facility markings to serve as a pilot project for some techniques that have not been used in Kirkwood, as well as expanding some techniques that are already in use.  The project is part of the implementation of the City’s 2015 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan with design assistance provided by Alta Planning & Design.

The new markings can be seen along the 2.3 mile route that ultimately connects the Grant’s Trail Trailhead in Kirkwood, at Leffingwell Avenue and Holmes Avenue, to the campus of St. Louis Community College-Meramec, Rose Hill Avenue and Geyer Road.  The route takes a few turns throughout South Kirkwood and also passes by the newly expanded and renovated Fillmore Park (click here for route map). 

The City feels that this is an important step in continuing to improve the bicycle facilities in Kirkwood by connecting the two activity centers of Grant’s Trail and STLCC-Meramec with a clearly indicated route for increased safety.  When the project is complete, it will include bicycle shared-lane markings, dedicated buffered bike lanes, and signage.
