active transportation plan, walking, biking
The City of Clovis Active Transportation Plan will convey a vision for the continued development of bicycle and pedestrian networks within the City of Clovis that create a safe, comfortable, and connected community for walking and bicycling. Clovis already has a solid foundation of investment in active transportation through the City's Bicycle Transportation Master Plan and existing bikeway and paseo network. Fehr & Peers has been hired by Clovis to continue to create great walking and bicycling opportunities for Clovis citizens.
Some streets in the City of Clovis may have insufficient right-of-way to add bike lanes alongside the current lane configuration. In these cases, it may be possible to redesign such roads to accommodate cars in fewer lanes to provide space for bike lanes with minimal impact to car travel. This process, often referred to as a road diet, has been performed on a number of streets within the city.
The following streets are being considered for vehicular lane reductions to accommodate bike lanes. Until a thorough evaluation is completed, these street will be included in the Active Transportation Plan as Class III Bikeways (bike routes). These streets include sections of:
The primary issue for the circulation element is to maintain and improve the road network to safely and efficiently move people and goods in cars and trucks. However, it is also important to reduce vehicle miles traveled through coordinated land use planning and facilitating non-automotive travel (i.e., transit, bikes, and walking). Additionally, the community highly values an extensive recreational trail system that adds to the quality of life.
The overarching goal of the Clovis General Plan Circulation Element is: A comprehensive and well-maintained multimodal circulation system that provides for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.
Goal 1: A context-sensitive and “complete streets” transportation network that prioritizes effective connectivity and accommodates a comprehensive range of mobility needs.
Goal 2: A roadway network that is well planned, funded, and maintained.
Goal 3: A multimodal transportation network that is safe and comfortable in the context of adjacent neighborhoods.
Goal 4: A bicycle and transit system that serves as a functional alternative to commuting by car.
Goal 5: A complete system of trails and pathways accessible to all residents.
Goal 6: Safe and efficient goods movement with minimal impacts on local roads and neighborhoods.
Goal 7: A regional transportation system that connects Clovis to the San Joaquin Valley region.
