Bikeway Maps Digitized and Now Available in Minnesota Reflections
by Marilee Tuite
MnDOT Library is pleased to announce the release of a new digital collection. Minnesota Bikeways is now available online in Minnesota Reflections, a project of the Minnesota Digital Library. Minnesota Bikeways includes more than 60 maps published between 1979 and 2001. They serve as a reference guide illustrating major historical and cultural points of interest in Minnesota, public park lands and facilities, equipment, and safety information.
Legislatively mandated, these maps were prepared as convenient guides to help bicyclists select their routes. They also depict road analyses for bicycle travel, location of paved road shoulders and off-road bikeways, and controlled access roads where bicycles are prohibited. Some maps focus on a region of the state, while others are specific to the Twin Cities metro area. Each map is unique and signifies a historical reference to the state of bicycle facilities at the time of publication.
Minnesota Reflections contains more than 135,000 images, maps, and documents from more than 150 of the state’s cultural heritage organizations.
