Bicycle Master Plan for Seattle


Seattle has given its Department of Transportation $32 million USD to splash about on bike projects. So they’ve been busy preparing a 10 year Bicycle Master Plan. So far the proposals include 21 mile (34 km) of bike trail and five new bicycle overpasses. There are also ideas for lane marking to allow autos and bikes to better share existing road space. The Seattle Times quotes David Hiller, advocacy director for the 6,500 member strong, Cascade Bicycle Club, as saying he hopes the city can increase cycling from his estimate of two percent of all trips now, to 12% of all trips within 20 years. ::Seattle Bike Master Plan.
