El Monte is in the midst of developing a Bicycle Master Plan. A primary goal is to connect major points of interest such as city facilities, schools, parks and transit centers. On Wednesday, October 8th, El Monte will consider the Transit Cycle Friendly Bike Project.
The project proposes to enhance Ramona Blvd. and Tyler Ave. with the first bike lane in the city. The project will include bikeway striping, stenciling, wayfinding signage, loop detectors, bike rack installations and the development of a multi-lingual bicycle education program. The bikeway will safely connect the Community Center, Transit Center, Senior Center, Arceo Park, and El Monte High School.
By approving these propsed bikeway improvements, El Monte will be taking a historic first step toward improving safety for bicyclists in the region. Join us in supporting this project by signing on to this petition. Thank you in advance.
