Big project for the 5 bikers I see a day. Hope I can see the lines in the snow.

Speaking of Cascade, 6:15 am yesterday...I thought, 'More new lines?" ...NOPE! A deer straight ahead...north of the College.
(Took someone to the CS Airport.)

Careful out there. Rem it's now 30mph.

The thing is the bike lanes accomplish more than just dedicated bike routes. They have lowered speeds and have reduced traffic volume on Cascade, both efforts the neighborhoods have been asking for. I'd anticipate it roll out further into adjoining streets.

This is significantly different than the effort on research where population density and business proximity is considerably different. There is enough research out there to show how changes like these can alter city cores in a positive manner.

Although I have witnessed a motorcycle using the lanes and auto traffic often will swerve into them to avoid a left turning vehicle.

I am familiar with how various initiatives can make cities more pedestrian and cyclist friendly which generally means increased density in the area. That also seems to be the direction urban planners and architects in the United States are heading in.
