The Sacramento City Council has approved an emergency ordinance allowing people to ride their bikes on the K Street mall in Downtown Sacramento.

The ordinance specifically allows bicycles on

  • 4th Street between J and L streets
  • K Street between 2nd and 4th streets
  • K between 7th and 13th streets.

The mall was designated primarily for pedestrians – that’s why bikes were originally banned on the stretch. But with the I-5 project coming up, city offiicals are worried a lot more motorists will be competing with bicyclists for space on downtown surface streets.
