North San Pedro Road/Merrydale Road is Getting a Makeover!

Posted on October 25, 2019


Bike Lanes

Public Works is conceptualizing bicycle related improvements in conjunction with street resurfacing to make developments to another location where they are needed: the intersection of North San Pedro Road and Merrydale Road. Both streets are listed in our Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. North San Pedro Road is listed in a feasibility study for Class IV protected bike lanes and Merrydale Road is listed as a Class III shared facility. Travel lanes are being narrowed to make
room for bike lanes leading up to the intersection and bike boxes on the southbound and westbound approaches. Bike boxes are a dedicated space for bicyclists at an intersection that puts them ahead and, therefore, in view of vehicles. The westbound North San Pedro Road approach is going from two shared-through lanes to one shared-through lane. This allows room to create a buffered bike lane on the east leg of the intersection.
