BikeABQ

I am ecstatic about the bike boulevard and ped/bike bridge over the river as seen here and here. Soon we'll be talking about separated bike lanes like these. I'm thinking of Carlisle, parts of Central, parts of Lomas, 4th, and Rio Grande. Perhaps the Great Streets Facility Plan would be a perfect place to implement a test case? I find it incredible that people question the use of $7.5 million for a pedestrian/bike bridge when hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually to subsidize oversized roadways throughout the city and particularly at the fringe. But then again, Marty isn't looking to set the record straight, he has another term to run for in the meantime. A nifty video about separated bike lanes...

Great video. Any plans in ABQ to build this kind of infrastructure?

I'm not sure it's even on the radar at this point. The BikeABQ and WalkABQ folks would be the ones to ask.
