City and UNT postpone Ave C cycletrack demolition

City traffic engineer Frank Payne just stated that the demolition of the Avenue C cycletrack is officially put on hold.  He says that they’ve discussed the project with UNT, and UNT has agreed to hold off on demolition pending additional research by city staff regarding right-of-way and permitting issues.

Stay tuned for more updates, because Avenue C isn’t going to become any less critical of a bicycle connection.  We’re optimistic that UNT will do the right thing, because, well, they’ve committed to it on page 12 of the official UNT Master Bicycle Plan:

“Major projects inclue:

– Improving the bike path along Avenue C to create better north south mobility and to start the transition to a pedestrian/bicycle mall as recommended in the Campus Master Plan”

Here’s the visual that clearly shows “Bike Path – New Pavement” for Ave C:

    Thanks for the update. This is very encouraging for the cycling community that Frank is on top of the issues and that UNT and the City are open to input.

    Why are bikes discouraged on Welch? I ride on Welch all the time. I don’t need discouragement. My doctor said I have a mild case of depression, but from what I understand, a lot of people do. I don’t think I need anti-depressants or anything. I’m a cool guy. I can handle it. Anyway, I like Welch.
