The Municipal Transportation Agency’s Board of Directors is likely to approve $200,000 for a study aimed at improving multiple travel methods on Market Street.
Market Street, the most-biked corridor west of the Mississippi, has been the scene of several innovative practices recently, including a pilot study that restricts automobiles on the thoroughfare, and a new separated bike lane.
The new study will continue in that vein, with the focus of the report investigating how cyclists, pedestrians, public transit vehicles, cabs and other private automobiles can coexist on the busy artery.
The $200,000 needed for the study, which is to be conducted by an outside analyst, will come from regional bridge toll money. The MTA’s Board of Directors is expected to approve the allocation at its meeting on Tuesday.
