Friday, March 1st is the last day to let the City of Durham know what you think about their plan for neighborhood bike routes, as well as their designs for signage..    

The proposed routes, also known as bicycle boulevards are within two miles of downtown Durham.

The transportation department says the routes will fill in the gaps in the current bike routes.

The routes will use signage and pavement markings to better connect residents to existing trails, bicycle routes, and other destinations. The first phase will designate approximately 7 milesof roads as neighborhood bicycle routes, and develop the appropriate signage and pavement marking plans. The routes proposed at this time are within a 1.5 mile radius of downtown Durham, offering the best opportunity to build out a network over time, starting at the center of the city, according to a news release from the city.

The proposed routes are:

* Arnette Avenue/Jackson Street/Buchanan Avenue/Shepherd Street to connect West Chapel Hill Street and Hermitage Court

*  West Corporation Street/Cleveland Street/Dowd Street/Gurley Street/Gray Avenue/Hanover Street/Juniper Street to connect Glendale Avenue and Spruce Street

* Hermitage Court/Hermitage Court Drive/East Forest Hills Boulevard/West Enterprise Street to connect Arnette Avenue and the American Tobacco Trail

* Glendale Avenue to connect the Duke Park Connector Trail and West Corporation Street

* Otis Street/Formosa Avenue/Concord Street to connect the American Tobacco Trail and North Carolina Central University at Fayetteville Street

* Spruce Street/Southgate Street/Maple Street/Ashe Street to connect Juniper Street and Driver Street

* Belt Street/Taylor Street to connect Liberty Street and Maple Street

* Watts Street to connect Main Street and West Club Boulevard
