Healdsburg Gets a Road Fix
The city of Healdsburg will receive a $11.8 Million grant to fund construction of protected bike lanes and pedestrian improvements on Healdsburg Avenue. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) approved the Active Transportation Program grant that will partially fund construction along a nearly 2-mile stretch of Healdsburg Avenue between Powell Avenue to just south of Passalacqua Road.
The number of driving lanes on Healdsburg Avenue will be reduced from five to three lanes and will include landscaped buffers alongside the protected bike lanes. The 10 foot wide bike lanes will also serve as a vehicle lane in the event of large-scale evacuations.
