The University of Kentucky’s (UK) 900-acre campus in Lexington features extensive bicycle infrastructure, programs and initiatives, which has earned the University a Gold-Level Bicycle Friendly University status from the League of American Bicyclists. With a desire to level-up, the University called on Gresham Smith to explore opportunities for improvements that will enable UK to become a Platinum-Level Bicycle Friendly University. During the multi-phase master planning process, Gresham Smith’s team will assess the University’s current network and offer a variety of design solutions that will enhance how students, faculty and staff move through campus. The team will then engage with the community to gather feedback on which design solutions will make cruising through campus a natural choice. The final master plan will serve as a roadmap for prioritizing bicycle infrastructure and programming in UK’s capital improvement projects.
