Complete Streets for South Lamar Boulevard

Lamar Edited

South Lamar is notoriously dangerous and unpleasant for people riding bicycles. One section of the street, in particular – the three blocks of Lamar between Riverside Drive and Barton Springs, where the street opens up to six lanes of traffic – is particularly hazardous. The danger is particularly stark because this section of South Lamar abuts the Pfluger Bridge – Austin’s premier piece of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. Bike Austin’s volunteer leaders are working to add protected bike lanes and pedestrian safety improvements to these three blocks of South Lamar.
