In December, Santa Ana opened its first protected bikeway.
The project features a 6-foot wide bikeway protected from vehicle traffic by a landscaped median. The improvements transform the portion of Bristol Street next to Santa Ana College into an area where transportation is easier and safer for everyone whether they’re walking, biking, taking transit, or driving.
More than half of the surrounding community in Santa Ana does not have access to a car. Eventually, nearly 3 miles of protected bikeways will be installed along the Bristol Street corridor.
