S+G Designs Cycle Tracks on Main Corridor
Washington University in St. Louis is a prestigious and successful research-led private university with growing enrolment numbers. At the fringes of campus where the pedestrian campus world meets Skinker Boulevard the university is experiencing conflicts between pedestrians, bicyclists, cars and buses. Skinker Boulevard is a major regional arterial road providing freeway access for cars and also an important connector to areas with significant student housing nearby.
Our urban design framework transforms the road into a safe multi-modal movement boulevard for local and passing users. The vision provides new public gardens, market areas, sidewalk cafes and restaurants near nodes of existing people activity. Our design provides for improved sidewalks with new street lighting and separated bicycle tracks to connects the campus with hubs of off-campus student accommodation. Phase 1 with improved lighting infrastructure was completed in 2015.
