Our bike boulevard here in San Luis Obispo, located on Morro St downtown, is in the news on the Los Angeles Streetsblog! The bike boulevard has been established for almost 3 years, and the barriers were added a little over a year ago. The barriers give bicycles the ability to pass through, while cars are redirected towards side streets, drastically reducing the car traffic on the street.

If you have not already taken a ride on the Morro St/Bill Roalman Bike Boulevard, it is a great chance to feel empowered on your bicycle, with decreased car traffic on the street, it is a very safe, comfortable ride for all types of riders. At the end of the street is a bike stop light sensor, allowing bicycles to have their own light at the Morro St & Santa Barbara St intersection. Simply place your bicycle on the marked sensors and see the bike light turn green for you to safely cross the busy intersection!
