Efforts to update the city of Pasadena’s Bicycle Transportation Plan are in full swing. The city’s Department of Transportation seeks to update the 2000 Century of Bikes Plan (see below) to encourage bicycle riding and improve conditions for those already riding.
Most of the projects in the 2000 plan have been completed, with 60 lane-miles of on-street bicycle routes identified with signage and striping. A bike map, increased bike parking and promotion of bike safety were also integral elements of the plan that have been implemented.
The Department of Transportation along with Ryan Snyder Associates, the consultant hired to develop the new transportation plan, have held two open meetings where the public offered their comments and suggestions for making biking in Pasadena a better experience.
A Bicycle Transportation Plan Advisory Committee that includes local cyclists, bicycle advocacy groups, bike shops and city commissioners and staff has been hard at work assisting the Department of Transportation as it looks at the full range of actions Pasadena could take. An updated plan is expected to require more innovation as the city considers such treatments as bicycle boulevards and road diets, among others.
An initial needs analysis was conducted to determine how visible, safe and well connected the bicycle network is for beginning and experienced cyclists. A draft plan was put together in Dec 2009 for public comment. A final draft plan is now ready for the public review and further input. For additional information regarding the Bicycle Transportation Plan update, please contact Rich Dilluvio, Senior Transportation Planner, at (626) 744-7254 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
