Question:

What is the capital cost and estimated staff time necessary for filling the bike lane gap on Commonwealth Ave between Oak St, Braddock Rd and Cliff St? (Vice Mayor Bennett-Parker)


Response:

The capital cost for designing and constructing the bike lane gap would be approximately $100,000 - $125,000 for design and $100,000 - $150,000 for construction. Staff time necessary for this effort, given the complexity of the project (including extensive public outreach and multiple community meetings given the need to remove parking), would be between 25-50% of the time for one full-time staff member for 12 – 18 months, assuming other projects are deprioritized during this time so that staff member can work on the Commonwealth Avenue project.
