Seaside’s West Broadway Urban Village – Plus Seaside places that reward people who show “bikes mean business!”

 

June 7-10, 2018 a Broadway Bash celebrated the completion of the West Broadway Urban Village project. Details: https://www.ci.seaside.ca.us/civicalerts.aspx?aid=195

Update from David Schmalz in the 5/10/18 Monterey County Weekly, “After years of planning and persistence, Seaside’s downtown is about to go boom.” That includes bike-sharing.

Update from James Herrera in the 5/18/18 Monterey County Herald, “Broadway Avenue in Seaside now open to traffic in both directions as $7M infrastructure project wraps.

Shout-out to Michael Thayer Painting for being a great role model in respecting the new bike box on West Broadway at Fremont in @city_of_seaside. To my knowledge, Seaside and Salinas are first in Monterey County to have bicycle boxes, and some drivers don’t seem to know what to do. I watched many disregard that “WAIT HERE,” but not Michael. Thanks for showing other drivers how it’s done – sharing the road and respecting the rights of people who bike. (To see that “WAIT HERE” pavement message under his truck, check out the next photo, a night scene at the same intersection.). . #bike #bikes #bicycle #bicycling #bicycles #sharetheroad #bikebox #trafficsafety #seaside #bikemontereycounty #bikemonterey #bicyclingmonterey #montereycounty #seemonterey #sustainable #transportation #environment #economy #actonclimate #bikelife #bikestagram #cycling #cyclist #gooddriver #traffic #safety #paintingcontractor #painter

What are bike boxes? 

If you’ve read Bicycling Monterey’s postA Right to the Road: Understanding and addressing the safety of people who bike,” you’re aware of bike boxes. Learn more in that post.

Among its diverse and multiple benefits—including to public health, community building, reduction of traffic congestion and carbon emissions—bicycling means business!

Biking benefits the economy in a variety of ways. For a quick look, see the Pew Charitable Trusts article, “Bicycling Tourists Are Older, Wealthier, and In Demand” by Marsha Mercer; “Bicycling Means Business: The Economic Benefits of Bicycle Infrastructure” from the League of American Bicyclists; and “Economic Benefits of Complete Streets” from the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.

People who bike Seaside, along with those who walk and skate, are among those anticipating with pleasure the West Broadway Urban Village Project in the Monterey Peninsula city of Seaside.
As with other infrastructure improvements, the Broadway Avenue construction naturally requires patience along the way. Here’s an advisory regarding the Broadway construction as well as construction on Seaside’s Fremont Boulevard, and on Hilby Avenue: http://www.ci.seaside.ca.us/DocumentCenter/View/4154
