|Chapter 1||Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.|
|Objective 3||Use innovative designs to expand and enhance the bikeway network.|
Establish dedicated right and left turn lanes for bicycles.
Designated places for bicyclists at intersections help reduce the number of accidents and conflicts with motorists.
|Peformance Measure||Establish dedicated bicycle turn lanes at 3-5 intersections by 2007 and at another 10-25 intersections by 2015.|
|Tracker Notes||Deadline hasn't passed. Dedicated bicycle turn lanes exist at: SB Milwaukee at Kinzie, EB Cortland at Clybourn.|
