The Village at Ison Creek

The developers of The Village at Ison Creek have generously provided connectivity from the bike lanes on Pinnacle Valley Rd. through their new subdivision and out between Buffalo Wild Wings and Walgreen's (Fig. 1).  This will create a bicycle connection from Taylor Loop to Pinnacle Valley Rd. without ever riding on Cantrell as part of the greater Taylor Loop Connection.


Figure 1.  This connection will allow someone on a bike to cross Cantrell at the Taylor Loop light, ride through a quiet subdivision and onto the new Pinnacle Valley bike lanes (picture from Pagis.org).

Bikes and motor vehicles will share the low-traffic road through most of the subdivision, but the connection between the cul-de-sac and the street behind Buffalo Wild Wings will be for bicycles and pedestrians only (and emergency vehicles when necessary) (Figs. 2-7).

Figure 6.  The path has a gate which can be opened by first responders and can be bypassed by bicyclists and pedestrians.


Figure 7.  The path exits onto what looks and operates like a street that leads directly to the intersection of Taylor Loop and Cantrell.
