On Friday, September 16, 2022, the City of York, and the City of York Public Works Department will be conducting a ribbon cutting ceremony of our new King Street Cycle Track. The ceremony will take place at 1:00 p.m. on the first block of E King Street at S Court Avenue.
The City has been working to become more bicycle friendly by establishing a primary community bikeway for eastbound and westbound travel in York. The King Street Bike Lane will provide residents better mobility and access to the city trail networks, bike routes, parks, businesses, and services. The project targets improved bicycle and pedestrian access to the rabbittransit Downtown Bus Transfer Center. Also, buses leaving the bus center on West King Street will have a new traffic signal and timing to help keep the buses on schedule. To improve safety for all users of King Street – motorist, buses, pedestrians, and bicycles; pavement markings, protective delineators, signs and minor changes to traffic signal will be made.
An $884,000 Federal Highway Administration Transportation Alternatives Set-aside Program and PennDOT/York MPO grant was awarded to the City of York for the construction of the King Street Bike Lane Project. Additionally, the City partnered with rabbittransit on $435,000 to fund the bike lane and traffic signal improvements at the Bus Transfer Center.
Thank you to all who assisted with this endeavor.
