Bike Plan Mania

It's that time, time to get a Bike Plan together if you're a government agency. The City of Spokane is soliciting input on their City Bike Plan, SRTC has just put it's Spokane Regional Bike Plan out for public comment, and now the Washington State Department of Transportation is updating its 2008 – 2027 Washington State Bicycle Facilities and Pedestrian Walkways Plan.

The plan will include strategies for improving connections, increasing coordination and reducing traffic congestion.

A draft of the Plan is available here The period to submit comments extends through the end of May. Comments can be submitted by calling the toll free number 1-866-375-6729.
