The City of Asheville is in the midst of a large project to update the City’s Greenway Plan, ADA Transition Plan, and Pedestrian Plan.
The City has been working with Asheville on Bikes and Connect Buncombe to develop a plan to install buffered bike lanes on College Street and Patton Avenue in the core of Downtown. These new bike facilities will connect to other existing bike lanes and future bike lanes that are planned. The City would like to gather feedback on the proposed design and plans from the public, Downtown businesses, and property owners prior to planned installation in Summer 2022.
The Greenway Connectors are on-road improvements in two project areas for bike and pedestrian safety and way-finding. The objective of this project is to connect greenways in the project area and provide safe passage for pedestrians and bicyclists from one greenway trailhead to another.
Changes under consideration are proposed for the part of Merrimon Avenue between W.T. Weaver Boulevard and Midland Road (at Beaver Lake).
The City of Asheville’s Transportation Bond project will be engineering and constructing a section of the Swannanoa River Greenway.
