Pedestrians + Bikes  

Pedestrians + Bikes

Our non-motorized transportation program seeks to calm streets in a manner that is conducive to bicycle and pedestrian travel.

The goal of transportation improvement programs has usually been to make the highway system as efficient as possible, with efficiency defined as making the flow of traffic better. This has resulted in overbuilt roadways, exclusive turn lanes that increase the walk distance across an intersection, additional travel lanes that reduce shoulder area available to bicyclists and traffic signal timing and phasing that favors vehicle movements.
