S+G Implement First
On-campus Bicycle Path
Washington University in St. Louis has completed the first section of a new campus-wide network of separated pedestrian and bicycle paths in 2017. The design was developed under the leadership of S+G and implemented in close collaboration between S+G and Arbolope as executive landscape architects.
The path design is based on recommendations made by S+G as part of the “WashU Mobility Strategy” for the Danforth Campus developed in 2016. It successfully implements the first built example of the next generation mobility infrastructure for WashU, setting a new standard for high-quality design as set out by S+G in the “WashU Legibility Guidelines”. Extensive testing was carried out with specialist concrete artists and contractors to test suitable material specifications for concrete mix and surface finishes along with a legible and attractive family of thermoplastic path markings.
S+G have facilitated a series of workshops for a large group of university stakeholders assembled specifically to build support across the university administration for the new mobility infrastructure. A key goal of the work is to reduce existing conflicts between pedestrians and bicyclists by helping to establish a new mobility culture on the Danforth Campus.
