Old Town Winchester
There are no designated Green Circle routes for bikes or pedestrians in Old Town. However, Winchester is one of only two communities in Virginia that maintains a downtown pedestrian mall. The Mall is one block north of Clifford Street on South Loudoun Street (turn right at Clifford and Loudoun intersection). Note: Bikers must walk their bikes on the Old Town Mall.
General facility improvements have been underway for several years and include the addition of pedestrian signals and crosswalks in conjunction with traffic signal upgrades at various intersections. It is hoped that the entire Old Town area will eventually be fully walkable with safe accommodations. Biking facilities present a special challenge. A master east-west bike route following Clifford or Cecil streets to connect the Town Run Linear Park with the Amherst Street Corridor. Similarly a north-south route perhaps utilizing designated bike lanes has been discussed in conjunction with modifications to Braddock and Cameron streets. Existing roadway widths, vehicle travel lanes and on-street parking are a mathematical dilemma for adding safe bike lanes on most Old Town streets.
NOTE: The conversion of Braddock Street and Cameron Street from one-way to two-way has been completed. The Old Town Pedestrian Mall (Loudoun Street) is scheduled for reconstruction in 2013.
