Advocacy Alert: Provo Needs Your Voice!

Bulldog Boulevard and 500 West Redesigns

Provo is considering plans for Bulldog Boulevard and 500 West that are designed to slow car traffic and add bike lanes.

Sadly, many residents intend to keep these streets the high-speed, wide-open roads they currently are. This would maintain the high level of traffic crashes–more than seven times the state average–and continue to discourage cycling along those routes. These people have already blasted the city government with messaging in opposition of the project.

We need your voice now to encourage our city government to install bicycle-friendly infrastructure so all road users can be safe.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Public Comment on Bulldog Boulevard: Provo City and UDOT want to hear your thoughts on the initial project design. Submit comments to the project team. Contact 888-966-6624 or provobulldogblvd@gmail.com.
  2. Online Comment on Bulldog Boulevard: Follow the link to comment on the proposed design.
  3. 500 West Design Open House: June 13 from 5-7pm at the Provo Recreation Center. Learn more about the project design.
  4. Contact your city council representative and voice your support for bicycle-friendly roads. Call (801) 852-6000 or email Council@provo.org
