Maintaining and clearing the Downtown Bike Network will be crucial in ensuring it stays an accessible and safe route for everyone. The width of the protected bike lanes allow room for most City maintenance equipment to clean the network in the spring, summer, and fall.
During the winter, the Downtown Bike Network will have dedicated crews to provide snow and ice control. Road maintenance activities that will be involved in maintaining a clear bike lane will include sweeping, removing snow from buffer areas and clearing snow from adjacent sidewalks. The Downtown Bike Network is part of the City’s primary bike network the City will make best efforts to plow and remove snow within 24 hours after the end of a snowfall.
