Kravis Center Cycle Track

Client:
Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
Location:
West Palm Beach, Florida
Awards:
This project was nominated for the 2020 Palm Beach County TPA Safe Streets Summit People’s Choice award for the best complete street project.

Project Description

In conjunction with the City of West Palm Beach’s Vision Zero initiative, the WGI Team worked with the Florida Department of Transportation to replace a substandard on-road bike lane with one at sidewalk level and created the city’s first protected cycle track for the entire length of the block. The cycle track is delineated with rock salt finish concrete and a tactile divider strip to separate it from the pedestrian walking area. Mature Live Oak trees were relocated from impacted areas on-site and replanted to provide shade for the sidewalk and cycle track. Previously no shade trees existed along the sidewalk for the entire length of the block.

The Kravis Center is at the entrance to the West Palm Beach downtown entertainment and dining district, and is adjacent to the county convention center and several hotels. While most patrons arrive by car, the surrounding area has become heavily traveled by pedestrians and cyclists. It was important to address the experience of all users and transportation modes.

This project was nominated for the 2020 Palm Beach County TPA Safe Streets Summit People’s Choice award for the best complete street project.
