Statewide Bicycle Planning Study
January 2012 - March 2013
The Statewide Bicycle Planning Study:
- Facilitated the development of a new state bicycle map which provides a statewide picture of bicycle accommodations in Minnesota to make it easier for people to plan longer distance bicycle trips in the state. The draft map was released in August 2012. Anticipated arrival of the final map is May of 2013.
- Established a new process for continuous updating of the map.
- Recommends improvements to MnDOT's policies and practices in planning and project development in an effort to create a more proactive and uniform process for considering bicycle accommodations on MnDOT projects.
- Informs the subsequent Statewide Bicycle System Plan which will begin in April 2013.
