Georgian Dr bike lane and parking changes (Aug 2013 update)

The city is changing the parking and bike lanes on Georgian from 183 to Rundberg to make them wider, which is safer for people opening car doors and for bikers riding next to traffic. To do this, they will only allow parking on one side of the street.

This is in addition to the traffic calming application for Georgian.

Rundberg to Home
Since April 2012, parking is allowed on the east side of the street.

Home to Elliott
Parking will be allowed on the east side of the street, except in the area around the S-curve at the creek, where no street parking would be allowed on either side. This will allow for a little more separation between the bike lane and the vehicle lane. This will be striped in a few weeks. Contact Neil Kopper with the City’s bike program if you have questions or concerns, 974-7166 or Neil.Kopper@austintexas.gov

Georgian (striping at bridge)

Elliott to Powell
Parking will be allowed on the west side of the street. These lanes will be striped in a few weeks.

Powell to Wonsley
Parking will continue to be allowed on both sides of the street.

Wonsley to 183
No parking allowed. The northbound right-turn only lane at Wonsley would be eliminated, which would provide enough space for dedicated bike lanes. These lanes would be striped after this section is resurfaced.

183 intersection
TxDOT will be striping bike lanes across the intersection as they complete their current work on 183. (They have also made some improvements to the curb ramps and signals at this intersection.)

Nieghborhood Plan Objective T.2: Improve bicycle connections within, into, and through North Lamar/Georgian Acres.
