Regularly update trail planning, design, and construction standards.

Strategy 1.2.2 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 2Establish new trails, improve existing trails, and improve access to trails.

Strategy 2

Regularly update trail planning, design, and construction standards.

Wherever possible, trails should be wide enough to accommodate all users. Adjacent soft surfaces for running may be appropriate.

Peformance MeasureUpdate the Chicago Park District's trail planning, design and construction standards on a regular basis. Ensure that new City of Chicago and Chicago Park District trails reflect these standards.
