Paul Van Dyk is a Traffic Engineering Associate at Long Beach Public Works. He has managed the city’s bicycle counting program, collision analysis, and helped develop the city’s Bicycle Master Plan. Paul has designed nearly twenty miles of bikeways during his 6 years with the city; since those designs began construction, citywide bicycle collisions have declined by 70% to their lowest level on record. Coincidence? Perhaps. He’ll take the credit anyway. Paul is a Long Beach native who studied at the University of Southern California and Long Beach State. He is a multi-modal commuter who can be seen arriving at City Hall atop the wheels of his 21-speed bicycle, a Dodge pickup, or Long Beach Transit Bus.
