Project Context

During the 13th and 15th Street Neighborhood Bikeway Project, the City will install bicycle priority street elements between South Philadelphia and Center City. The limits of the project are Market Street to Oregon Avenue on both 13th and 15th Streets. The treatment will include bicycle-priority signage, green-backed sharrows, bicycle wayfinding signage and painted edge lines. 

The project will be implemented in two phases. The City will measure bicyclist comfort and effectiveness of the elements of the neighborhood bikeway facility. Phase 1 will include signage only; implementation is scheduled for Spring 2017. Phase 2 will include green backed sharrows and line striping of parking edge lines.

Your responses to this survey will help the City understand and measure bicyclist comfort on 13th and 15th Streets, as well as test the effectiveness of neighborhood bikeway elements. The City will again survey the public between Phase 1 - Phase 2 and after Phase 2. 

Thank you for your time and participation!
