Biking & Walking
Bike Facilities
BW 1.01When they are reverted to two-way travel Cheyenne and Boulder Avenues are already slated to receive a bike lane in each direction. This strategy is embraced, but the bike lane is replaced by a cycle track wherever space exists, which is in all locations except in Cheyenne north of 1st Street. This facility covers the western half of the center of downtown.In Progress
BW 1.02North of Archer, M.L.K. Jr. Boulevard and Detroit Avenue are also being restriped to include bike lanes. Properly sizing these streets' travel lanes allows for these lanes to be one-way cycle tracks as well. These lanes are instrumental in bringing students northward toward OSU Tulsa and Langston University, and should be continued safely beyond those anchors.Complete
BW 1.03South of Archer, Cincinnati Avenue no longer has enough extra space to include cycling facilities, so the pair of cycle tracks are moved east to Elgin Avenue, a two-way street with ample pavement and lower car volumes. The east-west transfer occurs along Archer Street. This cycle track covers the east side of downtownComplete
BW 1.04An additional north-south facility is needed on the far west side to connect the western ends of the planned east-west network. This is achieved by placing bike lanes in Guthrie Avenue, a short segment of Heavy Traffic Way, and along Houston Avenue to 3rd Street. At that location, Houston widens, and its traffic loads suggest that one of its northbound travel lanes can be eliminated beyond the southern edge of downtown. This provides the opportunity for cycle tracks to be located on both flanks of the street all the way south to 12th Street, where they will connect with the cycle track there. These changes require construction of the median between 4th and 7th Streets.Not Initiated
BW 1.05Finally, a north-south corridor is still needed in the heart of downtown between Cheyenne and Elgin Avenues, which are 5 blocks apart. Midway between them is Boston Avenue, which has the least car traffic and the nicest views in downtown, and also connects directly to Tulsa Community College and its 7,000 in-town students. This facility can eventually reach from 3rd Street past the IDL, where it can continue all the way to 18th Street. The segment of Boston Avenue beyond the IDL should receive a classic 4-to-3 road diet, where its two lanes in each direction are replaced by two bike lanes flanking two driving lanes and a center turn lane.Not Initiated
BW 1.06Just south of the north leg of the IDL, sharrows are placed in slow-speed Easton Street to indicate the link between the Trail and the Cheyenne/Boulder facility.Not Initiated
BW 1.07With its ample pavement width, low traffic volumes, excellent connections beyond downtown, and its minimal amount of angled parking, Archer Street provides an ideal corridor for a pair of east-west cycle tracks serving the Brady and Greenwood districts.Complete
BW 1.083rd Street has most of the same qualities as Archer, and is the first street south of Archer to reach safely beyond to the IDL, including to the Pearl District and the Midland Valley Trail to the East. West of Cincinnati Avenue, it is wide enough to hold two cycle tracks. Further east, they become standard bike lanes.Complete
BW 1.09Between 3rd and 10/11th Streets, only 6th Street provides the opportunity for safe passage from east of the IDL all the way to Houston Avenue. Depending on its width, it receives a pair of either cycle tracks or bike lanes. Between Main and Boston Avenues, the introduction of a median requires one block of sharrow markings instead.Not Initiated
BW 1.10Route 66 is planned to approach downtown from the east on 11th Street with a cycle track, and a cycle track is already funded for 12th Street where it brings Route 66 into the west side of downtown. Between these two, that facility should continue as a cycle track along 10th and 11th Streets. Where 10th and Elgin intersect at the new roundabout, sharrows and careful signage will be needed to announce the merge condition.Complete
BW 1.11Bike lanes are planned to approach downtown from the east along 13th Street, and these are continued to their terminus on Boston Avenue.Not Initiated

Wayfinding
BW 4.01The division of downtown into a number of distinct named neighborhoods like Blue Dome and the Greenwood District is also helpful, and could be celebrated more comprehensively.Not Initiated
BW 4.02All intersections must receive street-name signs that face in both directions. For streets that are expected to stay one-way for some time, like Cincinnati and Detroit, the City may want to introduce less expensive pedestrian-scale street-name signs to solve this problem.Not Initiated
BW 4.03In addition to its more conventional signage, downtown Tulsa would benefit greatly from application of a concept called "Walk Your City," which replaces or supplements conventional downtown maps with destination-specific signs that identify walking direction and timeIn Progress

The Kit of Parts
P 5.01Driving lanes shall be 10 feet wide except for these exceptions: on slow flow streets, against angle parking, where they shall be 12 feet wide; and if a 22-foot-clear is not otherwise maintained or when directly against a curb, where they shall be 11 feet wideIn Progress
P 5.02Un-buffered cycle lanes shall be 6 feet wide, unless circumstances require them to be narrower, in which case they shall be no less than 5 feet wide. However, a short stretch of 4-foot lane is acceptable where there is no curb parking and the alternative is a less-safe Sharrow condition. Buffered cycle lanes shall be 5 to 6 feet wide, with 4 feet allowed on limited occasion. When 7 feet is available for cycling, it should be striped as a 4-foot lane with a 3-foot buffer. When 6 feet is available for cycling, it should be striped as a 6 foot cycle lane with no buffer. When 15 feet is available for both curb parking and cycling, it should be striped as a 7-foot parking lane next to a 3-foot buffer next to a 6-foot cycling lane.In Progress
P 5.03Parking lanes shall be 8 feet wide except for these exceptions: against a bike-lane buffer or in other rare occasions when space is at a premium, where they shall be a minimum of 7 feet wide; and when there is additional space in the roadway, where they may be as much as 9 feet wideIn Progress
P 5.04Based on existing parking measurements in downtown Tulsa, parking stalls shall be between 15 and 20 feet deep. If more than 17 feet deep, they shall be angled at 60-degree. Otherwise, they shall be angled at 45-degreeIn Progress
