The City of San Marcos Public Works and Engineering Departments will hold a public meeting on November 29, 2022, at 6 p.m. at Crockett Elementary School Cafeteria, 1300 Girard Street, where San Marcos residents can give input regarding the Craddock Avenue Bike Lane Pilot Project.
On January 4, City Council approved a pilot project on Craddock Avenue from Bishop Street to Old Ranch Road 12 for painted, buffered bike lanes to analyze the impacts and feasibility of a permanent, protected bike lane.
"We are looking forward to sharing the data we collected during the seven-month traffic study,” said Public Works Director, Sabas Avila. "We welcome feedback from members of our community who travel on Craddock Avenue frequently and are prepared to answer any questions or concerns.”
The data gathered during the traffic study after bike lanes were installed, showed the vehicles maintained a speed of 40 mph on Old Ranch Road 12 near Ramona Cir. and a slight decline in speed from 44 mph to 41 mph on Bishop St. near Furman Avenue between the start of the study in March 2022 and the end of data collection in September 2022. Additionally, an average of 18 cyclists per day were counted on Old Ranch Road 12 near Ramona Cir. at the start of the study and an average of 24 cyclists per day were counted at the end of the study.
Following the public meeting, all traffic study results will be shared with the public at http://sanmarcostx.gov/craddockbike.
