Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning in Eugene

22 11 2008

Eugene, OR is embarking on a strategic planning process to rewrite their existing Bicycle and Pedestrian plan using similar planning strategy to that conducted by our own Bike/Walk Duluth group. DATA is hoping to incorporate our Bike/Walk strategy into a comprehensive plan for Duluth as well. See an excerpt of the article here:

“Multiple poster boards were set up to give the public a clearer view of possible solutions to bike and pedestrian safety and efficiency issues throughout Eugene. Suggestions such as colored bike lanes would make cyclists easier to see but would be an expensive addition due to their high upkeep costs in rainy Eugene. “Bicycle Boxes” are an innovative new plan, and would extend a bike lane to cross in front of traffic, similar to a crosswalk, in order to make bike traffic more visible. Other recommendations include adding more right of way signs, or developing bike lanes that are physically detached from the rest of the road ways.”
