What is the Kensington Avenue Neighborhood Byway?
Kensington Avenue has been identified as a future Salt Lake City neighborhood byway in the Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan.
Neighborhood byways tap quiet neighborhood streets and formalize them into transportation corridors designed to crisscross the city and link to key destinations including neighborhood retail areas and corridors, parks, schools, and transit stations. Few changes are needed on the quiet streets themselves; the network is realized by providing for safe, often signalized crossings at the major barrier streets, and reducing traffic volumes to make walking safer and more enjoyable. “Neighborhood byways” is a term recognizing that these corridors create a network for both pedestrians and bicyclists.
