6. Approach A - develop OPB Task Force proposal - further existing OPB Task Force consensus - “OPB PLUS” Approach B - maximize median opportunities - minimize costs - “MEDIAN SUPREME” Approach C - maximize dedicated and separated bikeway opportunity - “BIKE HAVEN”

7. Alternative A - OPB PLUS Maintains intent of OPB Plan Typical curb-to-curb width 46’-0” vs.. (e) 64’-0” Introduces parkways at curb and select medians Provides Class II 6’-0” In-street bicycle lane Maximizes parkways and eliminates median at 4th St. bridge to maximize view corridor to ocean Restricts left-turns at select locations

13. Alternative B - MEDIAN SUPREME Maximizes medians along entire length of OPB Maintains width of existing curb-to-curb right-of-way Enhances sidewalks with pavers and trees - no additional sidewalk width Introduces protected crosswalks at Highland & 7th - increased neighborhood to neighborhood connectivity Provides Class II 6’-0” in=street bicycle lane Restricts left turns at select locations

19. Alternative C - BIKE HAVEN Maximizes medians along entire length of OPB Maintains width of existing curb-to-curb right-of-way Enhances sidewalks with pavers and trees - no additional sidewalk width Introduces protected crosswalks at Highland & 7th - increased neighborhood to neighborhood connectivity Provides Class II 6’-0” in=street bicycle lane Restricts left turns at select locations
