Unfortunately there is little funding planned over the next five years for
bicycle/pedestrian improvements by the city, county or state in the Missoula
Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), aside from about $35,000 per year
for Phil's bike/ped program and some improvements associated with large
projects. Search for the word "bicycle" in the TIP document on the OPG
Transportation web page and see for yourself:

We believe we could get a bike lane on one side of good portions of
those street without endangering parking on those streets.

What's going to happen to the on street parking on 5th & 6th? This is
crucial to many of the residents of these streets since they compete
with UM and Hellgate High for these parking spots.

Hopefully I'm just missing something but while I totally agree that
there needs to be a bike lane on 6th St. E to Arthur, there also needs
to be one on E 5th as both are one way streets. I can't tell you how
many times I've seen people riding the wrong way on both streets. Even
riding the right way can be a challenge.... If we want to encourage
University students and locals to ride, they need a safe route over
these two major roads.

This map indicates there is an EXISTING bike lane on Russell from

Greetings,



We have a lot of folks in our office who bike to work from all parts
of the valley. We have brainstormed on where Missoula's bicycle network
could be expanded and have prepared a map for discussion purposes. If
you're interested, you may view it at:
http://www.wgmgroup.com/Bicycle_Network_11x17.pdf. Since the
Transportation Plan is up for revisions, this is a good time for the
community to think about where new bike routes could be added.



Best,

WGM Group
