[ARCHIVED] Protected Bike Paths on Bogue Street to Remain in Place Through the End of Fall Semester

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State University and the City of East Lansing will be extending the Bogue Street protected bicycle path pilot project through the end of the fall semester. Originally, the pilot was expected to run through Oct. 31.

“The pilot extension allows us to collect more data about usage and safety while avoiding disrupting bicycle, e-scooter, pedestrian and vehicle traffic flow that travelers have become used to since the beginning of the semester,” said John Lefevre, director of planning, design and construction at MSU Infrastructure Planning and Facilities.

Since the pilot launched, most of the public feedback and the project’s safety record have been positive. The protected bicycle paths run from Grand River Avenue to Shaw Lane and are separated from southbound vehicular traffic with lane markers, signage and concrete bollards along the almost half mile that it runs. A decision on whether to install permanent paths for bicycles and e-scooters will be made at a later date.

“We are looking forward to seeing the finalized data and community feedback at the end of the fall semester,” said East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows. “The data and feedback will help to inform future decisions regarding permanent protected bike paths in the East Lansing-MSU community, which we will be scheduling community meetings to discuss.”
