Danville Bike Master Plan
Town Adopts Town-Wide Bicycle Master Plan
On July 6, the Town Council approved Danville’s first-ever Townwide Bicycle Master Plan. Adoption of the Plan concludes a nearly two-year process. That process included an extensive effort to reach out to Danville cyclists of all ages and abilities to identify the programs, policies, and physical improvements that will best serve the community. Through a combination of Zoom meetings, in-person “pop up” meetings, and comments submitted online, the Town received input from a wide variety of cyclists.
The plan identifies:
- 50 location-specific or spot improvements such as enhanced street crossings along the Iron Horse Trail and additional bicycle video detection at larger intersections.
- 44 roadway corridor improvements such as adding additional high visibility pavement markings and buffers to existing bike lanes and adding additional bike lanes where possible.
The Plan also calls for the creation of a Bicycle Advisory Committee, to be appointed by the Town Council. This Committee would provide input to the Town Council, the Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission, and Town staff on issues involving bike usage and safety. Recruitment for the Committee will begin later this year, check the Town website www.danville.ca.gov for more details.
The Plan is intended to be a living document, which will be reviewed and updated periodically to meet the needs of the community. If you have questions about the Plan or its contents, please contact the Town’s Transportation Manager, Andrew Dillard, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
