Title: The Niagara Frontier bicycle master plan
Author: Richards, Eugene S.; Edwards and Kelcey, inc.; Niagara Frontier Transportation Committee (N.Y.)
Abstract: The Niagara Frontier Bicycle Master Plan was developed to establish a comprehensive bicycle transportation system in Erie and Niagara Counties. Potential bicycle trip generators and bicycle demand corridors were identified along with major new developments, bicycle restricted roadways and abandoned railroad rights-of-way. Potential routes were evaluated based on selected criteria and assessed during actual field reconnaissance by bicycle. The selected routes were based on these evaluations in conjunction with other existing and committed bikeway projects and coordinated with major new development and transportation projects to produce a prioritized plan and implementation schedule. The Plan provides a skeletal system that can tie together local bicycle facilities. In addition, ancillary facilities, which include bicycle parking facilities, dual-mode facilities and other support facilities, were described as well as a bicycle program that discusses the physical, marketing, educational, and enforcement elements of a comprehensive program. Federal, state and local funding sources for bikeway facilities were also identified. Recommended policies are set forth regarding bicycle usage, future bikeway expansion, updating, and coordination of the Plan.
