Maintain bike lanes in excellent condition.

Strategy 1.6.1 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 6Prioritize ongoing maintenance and repair of the bikeway network.

Strategy 1

Maintain bike lanes in excellent condition.

Proper maintenance of bike lanes is an important consideration in people's decision to bicycle and a key factor in bicycle safety. Ensure safety through enhanced maintenance, including regular inspections, replacing worn pavement markings and bike symbols, replacing damaged signs, sweeping away debris, repaving streets, and repairing potholes.

Peformance MeasureInspect the bike lane network 3-4 times per year, issuing work orders to address maintenance issues, beginning in 2006. Sweep streets with bike lanes at the same frequency as the sweeping of arterial streets, beginning in 2006.
Tracker NotesI'm not aware of any of those performance measures happening.
