Type: Master Plan
Size: 3.1 Square Miles
Status: Complete, Implementation Underway
The Street Plans Collaborative joined B. Dennis Town & Building Design, Dover, Kohl & Partners, and Portsmouth, NH based TND Engineering to provide bikeway planning and design support for the Dennis Port, Massachusetts Redevelopment and Revitalization Master Plan Charrette.
Building off the existing Cape Cod Rail Trail, which runs east-west through the northern reaches of Dennis Port, TSPC recommended adding a network of Shared Use Lane Markings (sharrows), Bicycle Lanes, and Shared Use Paths to help the village increase active transportation amongst its residents and seasonal visitors. Additionally, Street Plans employed the concept of a “bike-shed” to demonstrate that at 3.1 square miles, Dennis Port’s amenities are all within a short bike riding distance.
The charrette plan also allocated a number of safe and convenient bicycle parking facilities designed to further enhance the viability of bicycling year-round.
