Since completing the 2011 San Antonio Bike Master Plan, San Antonio has undergone significant changes on multiple levels. Population growth in the area has been exponential and is anticipated to continue at its current pace. The demands on the transportation system have kept pace with the growth and development, and the influx of new community members has defined the need for more modal options, connectivity, equitable access, and an overarching need for increased safety.
RS&H was selected by the City of San Antonio to provide planning services to update its Bicycle Network Plan. This project includes best practices in sustainable bicycle facility planning, design, and implementation of the city’s SA Tomorrow comprehensive, multi-modal, and sustainability plans serving as the foundation. RS&H provides active transportation planning, multimodal transportation planning, stakeholder and public engagement, long-term and short-term (tactical) bicycle facility design, and identification and securing of funding.
RS&H’s team provides complete expertise for all aspects of San Antonio’s mobility goals, from urban planning and design to placemaking to preliminary engineering and final design. Our approach identified various unique approaches and enhancements to this study, including updating previous datasets, reviewing the 2011 Bike Plan, community and decision-makers education, and demonstrations/pilot events.
The Bicycle Network Plan will guide, prioritize, and inform the implementation of a network of quality bicycle facilities to improve access to options that result in enhanced connectivity and improve public health, physical activity, safety, employment and recreational opportunities, and overall quality of life for all of San Antonians.
The project team provided an unmatched level of commitment, expertise, and experience crucial to the execution of this unique project in a condensed nine-month timeline. The entire team worked tirelessly to deliver this unique project and restore a vital transportation network to the city.
The Lesner Bridge is arguably Virginia Beach's signature bridge and boasts an average annual daily traffic (AADT) count of over 20,000 vehicles. The City of Virginia Beach set a goal to produce a bridge with a 100-year lifespan that incorporated new aesthetics and safety measures.
