This connecting section of Santa Cruz Ave, between the Alameda “Y” and Avy Ave does not have marked bike lanes nor does it have any on pavement guidance for how cyclists, vehicles, and parked cars are to co-exist on the roadway.
The following graphic shows one aspect of gaining extra safety by simply using the existing roadway. Currently Santa Cruz Ave has wider than necessary traffic lanes. Using the excess width can yield a 4' bike lane in the up-hill direction (southbound).
Drag the center control bar in above graphic to right or left for before/proposed views
