Install raised bike lanes at appropriate locations.

Strategy 1.3.7 Details

Chapter 1Bikeway 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 3Use innovative designs to expand and enhance the bikeway network.

Strategy 7

Install raised bike lanes at appropriate locations.

Raised bike lanes have a slightly raised edge to prevent motorists from driving in the lane, protecting bicyclists from fast-moving traffic. If successful, expand initiative.

Peformance MeasureIdentify 3-5 potential locations in 2006. Test 2-3 locations by 2010.
