|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.|
Determine the appropriateness of advanced stop bars at intersections with high volumes of bicycle traffic.
This design, also called "bike boxes," provides bicyclists a protected space in front of queued motor vehicles at traffic signals, giving them a head start and extra visibility when the light turns green. If successful, expand initiative.
|Peformance Measure||Determine the appropriateness of advanced stop bars in 2006. If appropriate, test at 2-3 intersections by 2008.|
|Tracker Notes||Not completed until 2011. Tested at 2 intersections: Kinzie/Wells (on one leg only), and Kinzie/Milwaukee (on two legs).|
