The City of Asheville requests input from the community regarding the  College Patton Bike Lane Project. The primary objective of this project is to increase multimodal connectivity, which includes expanding dedicated bicycle infrastructure throughout the city’s urban core. The City would like input from the community on the most recent draft design of the proposed project


The primary concern heard throughout initial engagement events were related to loading and delivery access. The draft designs now include over 115 feet of additional loading zone area. The City now seeks input on the updated loading zone areas and bike rack placements along the project corridors. City staff including, Transportation, Planning and Urban Design, Fire, and Police will be present at the event to answer any questions the community may have regarding the development, safety, and implementation of the project.
