Osborn Road Safety Modifications

​Project Overview

The proposed safety modifications for Osborn Road are aimed at creating a safer environment for all users of the roadway, adding greater connectivity to area activity centers and improving bicycle lane connectivity.

Proposed safety modifications for Osborn Road, between 15th and 19th avenues, include the removal of one vehicular-travel lane in each direction. Reducing travel lanes allows the roadway to be repurposed to include design elements such as a center-turn lane and buffered bike lanes. The new proposed bike lanes connect to existing bike lanes on Osborn Road east of 19th Avenue and existing bike lanes on 15th Avenue.


Project Location

Osborn Road between 15th and 19th avenues
