Routinely consider establishing bikeways during the planning and engineering design of roadways.

Strategy 2.1.2 Details

Chapter 2Bicycle-friendly Streets: While bicycling is permitted on all streets in Chicago (except expressways) many factors discourage bicycle use, including narrow travel lanes, congested roads, and uneven pavement. This chapter identifies ways to make Chicago's streets more bicycle-friendly.
Objective 1Accommodate bicycling in every city, county, and state road construction, resurfacing, streetscape, and traffic calming project.

Strategy 2

Routinely consider establishing bikeways during the planning and engineering design of roadways.

Expand the focus of the Bike Lane Design Guide so that it becomes a bikeway design guide for roadway engineers, to ensure that bikeways are designed and built to appropriate standards. Develop roadway planning procedures to ensure that bikeways are routinely established as part of roadway construction projects.

Peformance MeasurePrepare a Bikeway Design Manual by 2007; arrange city, county and state approval and use by 2008. Develop roadway planning procedures by 2008.
Tracker NotesStatus unknown. A Bikeway Design Guide was created by 2007 - I'm not sure if that's the same thing as the Bikeway Design Manual in the description.
