You're right, Jim. Most larger projects have some bike/ped element.

Alex,
Would bike improvements that are included in other projects not show in
your search? My understanding is that most major improvements fold in
bike, ped and landscaping as part of the deal. Hope that hasn't changed.

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
