In my 8 years of bicycling to work (at KU), I see improvements every year that make my rides safer. Another improvement is the Iowa/23rd St intersection. Its now very easy, and low stress to cross, even at 5pm rush hour. Whoever designed that intersection should be commended for saving lives of cyclists and pedestrians. The shared paths around Menards and Baker Wetlands are nice. On weekends, whenever I need something from a hardware, I bike to buy stuff at Menards. There remains some nasty intersections on my route. Kasold/Clinton Pkwy during rush hour is dicey. Mainly, from fear of right hook from cars. Another danger spot is Hartford/Clinton Pkway going south -- vehicles will inch forward to see traffic on Clinton, and block the zebra crossing for cyclists on the shared path. The crossing on Iowa at the theater is a bad idea and an accident waiting to happen. That should have been a tunnel. I only cross that thing on Sunday mornings when traffic is minimal. The culprits are the drivers from K-10 who make a right on Iowa. I'm pretty sure you wanted to put a tunnel in there but ran out of money. Please, don't paint anymore bike lanes. They are useless in bad weather and night time. Build protected bike paths. Build bike infrastructure that you would let your 10 year old kids bike.

1. Would you support implementing the following programs?



Other
Develop a multi-faceted county-wide educational/law enforcement campaign to train motorists on the rules of the road as it applies to cyclists. I understand that some of the above programs are aimed at this but, a comprehensive and highly visible strategy is needed; one that does not require motorists to opt-in but rather, one that implements a "cultural shift approach to educating motorists and cyclists.


2. Is there anything else you think we should measure?
Heat map of cyclist (and pedestrian) crashes with motorists


3. Are there connections you think should be added to the bikeway network?
Widen and expand one of the 6th street sidewalks (north or south side) to become cycle/pedestrian path to Tennessee. Make the surface of cycle/pedestrial path flat, thus no need for accessibility ramps. Add control features for motorists entering 6th street to alert them to potential cycle/pedestrian traffic such as speed bump, color coding of path, "rumble" strips to alert motorists that they are about to cross a bike/pedestrian path.

1. Would you support implementing the following programs?



2. Is there anything else you think we should measure?
Not really


3. Are there connections you think should be added to the bikeway network?
Completion of the planned bikeways will provide nice options in addition to the existing network.


4. I believe constructing the proposed priority and secondary bike network will encourage more people to bike in Lawrence. (Select one)
Strongly disagree


5. Are there connections you think should be added to the priority network (shown in blue)?
Two important intersections for bikers (particularly children) are very dangerous and require consideration for safety mitigation: 1) Inverness between Bob Billings and 27th, particularly at Clinton Parkway; and 2) the infamous K10 crossing to the Soccer Fields and Arboretum. Whether they should be part of the proposed priority bike network is an open question, but there needs to be traffic calming or possible an over/underramp for the K10 crossing.


6. Are there connections you think should be added to the secondary network (shown in yellow)?
No


7. Do you have anything else you want to share with us about bicycling in our community?
Bicycling has become much safer and more fun in Lawrence over the last 10 years. I think the current plans will vastly improve accessibility to all parts of town.
