Bike Lane Update

From the City Of Richardson‘s weekly newsletter:

The City Council received an update on efforts to expand the Bike Transportation Program in Richardson at its work session on Monday. The City is among many other municipalities and organizations in North Texas working to provide more bike lanes and improve safety for people who commute by bike. Many of these bike routes are designed to connect across the region when complete. 

Expanding Richardson’s bike lane system and enhancing pavement markings and signage is one of the City Council’s near-term goals. Ten miles of a planned 20 miles of bike lanes have been installed, including lanes on Custer Parkway, Grove Road and Waterview Drive. Additional lanes funded through the Safe Routes to School grant are expected to be complete in 2013 along Collins Boulevard from Plano Road to Jupiter Road, Yale Boulevard from Arapaho Road to Campbell Road, and Owens Boulevard from Woodoak Drive to Campbell Road. The Duck Creek Trail Extension will add a route in 2014 along Collins Boulevard from Plano Road to US-75

The City has installed signs identifying bike routes in Richardson and is working to clearly mark them on roads to improve safety. City officials will continue to work with bicycle organizations, including local partner Bike Friendly Richardson, and neighborhood groups to identify and implement additional bike routes.

Here’s some exciting information from our neighbors to the south.

On September 23, 2010 over 200 people participated in our second public meeting at Dallas City Hall. At this meeting, the maps showing the proposed draft network and facility type recommendations for the Dallas Bikeway System were presented.  We received a lot of great feedback that will help improve the Bikeway System Master Plan, and the period for further public comments on these draft maps will end at 5PM CDT on October 15th, 2010.  For your convenience, the draft maps have been added to the Dallas Bike Plan website.

To view and download the maps, as well as other materials from the public meeting, please click on the following link or paste the web address into your internet browser:

In just a few days a comments function will be added to the website where you can provide us with your thoughts and reaction to the proposed bicycle facility recommendations, bicycle network alignments.
