Bike Route System

Building the Bike Route System

The IA Board has allocated $15 million, in annual installments of $750,000, to the Blueprint 2020 Build the Bike Route System (BRS) Project. Consistent with IA Board-approved updates, Blueprint will propose projects for IA Board approval annually, under the BRS program, according to this process:

  • Leveraging opportunities with Blueprint, City, County and private road projects that have bicycle facility improvements identified.
  • Tier 1 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) Projects.
  • Projects identified as part of a Facilities Gap Analysis completed by the Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Department.

Ridge Road Trail

The first of three feasibility studies planned for FY 2022, the 2.31 mile Ridge Road Tier 1 BPMP Major Project will connect Crawfordville Road and the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail to Springsax Road. There are currently no bicycle facilities on this corridor, and nearly 10-15 percent of households in this area do not own a vehicle.

Blair Stone Road Trail

The 2.12 mile Blair Stone Road BPMP Tier 1 Major Project would complete a major gap in the bicycle network on Blair Stone Road from Governor’s Square Boulevard to Orange Avenue. The BPMP proposes implementing a multi-use path or designated buffered bicycle lanes. As part of the feasibility study, updated cost estimates will be developed.

Southwest Area BRS Project

The SW Area BRS Connector is a BPMP Tier 1 Neighborhood Network project.  It would provide a north-south connection between the Tallahassee Museum, the Florida State University (FSU) reservation, the FSU Intramural fields (Southwest Rec SportsPlex) and neighborhoods along Pensacola Street and Jackson Bluff Road that currently lack safe bicycle and pedestrian access to these locations. The University Greenway design included in the GWMP also would connect to Tyson Road and Eisenhower Street.
