Missing Link Bike Path Update
With the installation of the green bollards along Valley Parkway, the Missing Link Bicycle Path is starting to come together. In November we will see completion of the bicycle bridge over the Escondido Creek and paving of the bikeway along the Escondido Creek between Quince and Centre City Parkway. In addition, new signals will be installed along Broadway at Woodward and linking Grape Day Park to the Children’s Museum. The green bollards are a unique feature that separate vehicle traffic from the two-way cycle track. As you can see from the video below, they are both durable and aesthetically pleasing.
