1st Street Bikeway Study

City of Wenatchee, WA

This study looked at connecting downtown Wenatchee with residential areas west of the City’s center. People riding bicycles have been using 1st Street for a number of years due to its direct connection to downtown and to the Apple Capital Loop Trail which follows the Wenatchee River. A pedestrian and bicycle only bridge across the railroad tracks creates a seamless connection. Perteet was contracted to evaluate alternatives to enhance the corridor for those riding bicycles. The study involved data collection, assessment of alternatives for the roadway cross-section, intersection control alternatives, and outreach to the public. The study utilized easy to interpret graphics for discussions with both City Council and the public. In addition to a city council presentation, Perteet and the City closed a block of 1st Street and laid out a “pop up” bike lane to show the proposed bike lane and parking configuration. This was well received by the public and assisted in public understanding of the proposed separated bike lane.
