|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 1||Add new bike lanes and signed bike routes.|
Establish bike lanes at locations that are not identified in the Streets for Cycling Plan.
Opportunities for new bike lanes exist beyond the locations identified in the Streets for Cycling Plan in 2000. For example, bike lanes might be appropriate with new development, reconstructed roads, or to connect to new trails. Wherever possible, establish these bike lanes as part of other roadway projects to provide new paved surfaces and reduce installation costs.
|Peformance Measure||Determine locations by 2007. Establish 26 miles of bike lanes by 2015.|
|Tracker Notes||Still in progress - deadline not passed. I have never seen the Streets for Cycling Plan. Is it online?|
