A vision for making downtown West Palm Beach more navigable
Here are the recommendations from Alta Planning + Design:
Nineteen miles of enhanced streetscape, including planting trees to provide shaded walkways.
Create a complete and connected high-quality, low-stress bikeway network.
Two existing miles plus 15 proposed new miles for 17 miles of bikeways, which would result in 600 percent increase in bikeway network.
Forty-five percent of streets with bikeways in downtown.
Thirty percent of streets with transit access improvements downtown.
Potential dedicated bus lane on
Enhance routes within downtown. Enhance and extend routes out of downtown to adjacent neighborhoods and park-and-ride lots.
Support park-once concept for downtown streets.
Improve safety of streets for all users. Increase route options in downtown, particularly east-west options.
Fifty-two percent of streets to experience improvements downtown (17 miles of projects).
Convert one-way to two-way streets. Create shared spaces for more bike lanes and green spaces.
