South Division 2-Way Bikeway Proposal Survey open until Mar 31, 2022

The City announced on Mar 11, 2022 an online survey regarding a proposed 2-way bikeway expansion on South Division between Packard and Hoover. Mailers were sent to residents in the affected area with information about the survey. I have reprinted below the text from the mailer, images of the mailer, and information from the survey.


From the mailer:

The City of Ann Arbor invites you to participate in an online survey regarding the way you travel and parking on S. Division St.


The survey will be open until March 31, 2022. The survey form can be found at: https://forms.office.com/g/8jMTnGGP1D


Questions and comments may be directed to: Cynthia Redinger, PE, PTOE RSP1

Transportation Engineer

From the survey:

The City is interested in expanding the recently installed two-way cycle track on S. Division Street. The proposed project will extend the cycle track from Packard St. to Hoover St. This project will provide better bicycle access between housing and the downtown as well as creating a more comfortable travel route for access between U of M's central campus and athletic facilities.


The project fulfills Ann Arbor Moving Together's identified goals for All Ages and Abilities bicycling network expansion and advances A2Zero's policy goal of a 50% reduction in vehicle miles traveled.


Please take a moment to provide staff with information about yourself and how you travel in this area.

 

Questions in the survey include:

  • Do you currently park on S. Division between Packard and Hill?

  • Do you currently park on S. Division between Hill and Hoover?

  • Please let us know how the change, shown below, will impact your travel on S. Division

  • Please let us know how the change, shown below, will impact your travel on S. Division

For reference, these are the "Existing" and "Proposed" intersection drawings from the survey:
