Is Federal Bike Lane Guidance Working in Your City?

Do you design bike infrastructure for a city, as either staff or a consultant? If so, Bikes Belong's Green Lane Project wants to hear from you.

The Green Lane Project is hosting a survey that seeks to gauge how well federal transportation guidance is meeting the needs of planners and engineers involved in bike projects.

The organization will present its findings to U.S. DOT at a safety summit later this month. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood indicated in February he is preparing to issue design guidelines for cyclists and pedestrians in response to safety concerns raised by cyclists about current street design standards such as those promoted in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Official’s Green Book.

Survey responses will also help inform the National Association of City Transportation Officials in future editions of its Urban Bikeway Design Guide.

The survey is open till April 20.
