Prop 409: What it means for bikes
Bicyclists could see some benefit from the city’s proposition 409 roadway resurfacing bond, which officially passed this week.
The $100 million bond package will resurface tucson streets and bicycle lanes will be restriped on the roads where the exist today. Additionally, if a street that is resurfaced has the ability to add a bike lane when restriping it, the city will do so.
Tucson’s bicycle and pedestrian program manager, Ann Chanecka said 15 percent of the money will go toward resurfacing neighborhood streets. The bond committee, which will be made up of Tucson residents, will receive recommendations from the city staff and will decide which residential streets get repaved.
“I’m hoping that some of the residential streets that get repaved are high capacity bicycle corridors,” Chanecka said.
