Description

At 48-feet wide, Sherman Avenue from Legion Avenue to Bassett Street is wide enough to accommodate a two-way protected cycle track on the west side of the street with minimal impact on travel or on-street parking lanes. While dedicated bike lanes exist along portions of the street, protected cycle tracks are safer and more accessible to a broader audience, including vulnerable and inexperienced riders of all ages. Should funding become available, Sherman Avenue would be an ideal candidate for multi-modal transportation infrastructure investment like a two-way protected cycle track through eight neighborhoods from the Upper Hill to Highwood in Hamden.

For more information on how this transportation facility might work along the corridor, see below.
