A temporary bike lane could make Iowa City even more bike-friendly.

A class in the University of Iowa College of Public Health collaborated with Iowa City and community organizations to put together a bike boulevard.

The temporary bike boulevard will be set up on College Street on May 21 from 8 a.m. to noon. The route will begin at City High and end at the Iowa City Farmers’ Market at Chauncey Swan Park. Along the route will be a few different types of bike lanes, some more protected than others.

The project was put in place by four graduate students in the College of Public Health as part of a communications campaign class. The bike boulevard is a part of a larger campaign the group has put together called Join the Movement.

Emily Hejna, a student in the class, said the goal of the larger campaign is to get people to push for a more bike-friendly Iowa City, and to educate the community on bike safety.
