The Maryland Avenue Bike Lane Project is one of the projects included in the Glendale Onboard Transportation Program (GO) developed in 2001, approved by voters later that year, and incorporated into the Program’s 25-year implementation program.
In 2006, the Citizen Bicycle Advisory Committee recommended the Maryland Avenue Bike Lane Project to the Citizen’s Transportation Oversight Committee, which in 2008, supported the project for inclusion in the GO Program.
Maryland Avenue is a major east-west bike route in Glendale but has short segments that do not allow for continuous safe, convenient bicycle travel. Project objectives include completing connectivity along the Maryland Avenue bike route in places that currently lack appropriate bicycle access.
The Maryland Avenue Bike Lane Project will include improvements along Maryland Avenue, from 67th to 75th avenues, to provide better access to the bike route and pathway for those people walking or bicycling to Discovery Park or nearby Independence High School.
Maryland Avenue, from 67th to 69th avenue, will be widened on the north side by 14 feet and restriped to provide a bicycle lane on the north and south side of Maryland Avenue in this area.
In addition, the project will provide connectivity to the existing Discovery Park multi-use paths for bicyclists from both Discovery Drive at the southeast end of the park and from Maryland Avenue at the northwest end of the park.
Upon completion of design, the project will be scheduled for construction.
