Brighon's first Bicycle Boulevard will open on Monday May 16th. A bicycle boulevard is a low-speed street, where motorists expect to see bicyclists and are intended to improve bicyclist comfort and/or safety. The proposed route is approximately 1.7 miles long and starts at the Highland Avenue/Hillside Avenue intersection then continues south along Hillside Avenue to Claybourne Road. The Boulevard continues west along Claybourne Road and Warrington Drive then turns south west along Sylvan Road and ends at the Town of Brighton Town Hall.
Directional signs are installed along the designated route through Brighton. This route will provide bicyclists access to recreational and work destinations, schools, police, library and local shops. Bicycle boulevards provide environmental, health, social and economic benefits while creating a sustainable community.
