Council Approves Oregon Street Bike Lanes


 

After some vigorous discussion and two failed amendments, the Sturgeon Bay City Council Tuesday ultimately decided in favor of adding bike lanes to Oregon Street between 1st and 3rd Avenues.

Aldermen voted 5-1 in favor of the plan recommended by the Parking & Traffic Committee, which calls for installing dedicated bike lanes on both sides of Oregon Street, with a sharrow for approximately the last 125 feet before 3rd Avenue. John Lodl was the no vote. Dan Wiegand abstained.

The decision came after an amendment by Wiegand to send the matter back to the Parking & Traffic Committee narrowly failed and a separate amendment to install dedicated bike lanes all the way to 3rd Avenue -- a plan recommended by the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin -- was also shot down.

The Bike Fed's recommendation was received via letter on Tuesday, after the Parking & Traffic Committee had made its recommendation.

Alderman Bob Schlicht, the Parking & Traffic Committee chair, reminded the Council that the inclusion of bicycle lanes on that stretch of Oregon Street is part of the city's bicycle master plan which was adopted in 2011.
