|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 bike boulevards to prioritize bicycling on streets with low traffic volumes and slow speeds.
Use a combination of traffic calming, intersection treatments, and signage to make it easier and safer for bicyclists and pedestrians to cross intersections and discourage non-local motor vehicle traffic.
|Peformance Measure||Identify 5-10 potential locations by 2008. Establish 10 miles of bike boulevards by 2015.|
|Tracker Notes||Begun in 2012 with the announcement that the first bike boulevard will be on Berteau Avenue from Lincoln to Clark.|
