The Sabine Street Promenade project, located along Sabine Street between 4th and 6th Streets, gives priority to bicyclists and pedestrians by creating a festival street atmosphere.
This project consists of transforming a one-way roadway and sidewalk into a right-of-way to enhance connectivity between the existing Lance Armstrong Bikeway and the historic building fabric. The proposal to create a thoroughfare for cyclists and pedestrians along the west side of the right-of-way is intended to provide an environment for events without disrupting local access for vehicular traffic.
