The facility recommendations in BikeHoward guide the development of the County’s bicycle network. The proposals outline a way to grow the network of biking facilities by filling in missing connections and branching out to new areas.
To ensure the network is easy to use for people of all ages and abilities, the focus is on high quality, separated facilities such as off street path-ways and protected bike lanes. These facilities need to be continuous rather than disjointed, and need to connect places that people want to go to.
The proposed Bike Howard network was developed with extensive community input, consultant expertise and staff guidance from many departments. It is organized into short-term, mid-term and long-term portions, growing the network to connect people and places in the county.
These maps are organized by the three networks, starting from the short term and building out to the long term network. The map provides additional detail for each facility when you click on the segment.
