Cougar Blvd Bike Lanes are Complete!
The protected bike lanes and tree-lined sidewalks on Cougar Boulevard are officially open! Today is about community building and this road is a true example of a redesigned and now renamed street that is a win for everyone.
The completion of the Cougar Blvd project means more opportunities to visit the area by bike and scooter and a safer, more beautiful experience for everyone whether they drive or use active transportation.
Drivers benefit from having more signalized intersections and turning lanes. This road was once deemed 7x more dangerous than the average Utah road. Drivers are safer today.
People on bikes benefit from having only the third dedicated bike lane in Utah. Bikers are safer today.
Pedestrians benefit from having wide, smooth sidewalks and more trees that provide shade, protection, and encourage drivers to slow down. Pedestrians are safer today.
Safe streets matter more than anything. I encourage everyone to get out and experience these beautiful designated and safe bike lanes!
