CT BIKE COALITION GETS GRANT FOR WORK WITH KIDS

According to a Feb. 28th news release, "The Connecticut

Bicycle Coalition, through a Department of Justice Weed and

Seed Grant and in cooperation with the Hartford Police

Department, has received funding for bicycle safety and

education presentations and a competitive youth Bicycle

Moto-Cross (BMX) program in Hartford's Northeast

neighborhood. The program is targeted to reduce injuries

and accidents by reinforcing the importance o helmet use

and the proper operation of a bicycle. In addition the BMX

program will give children in the target area access to

bicycle racing, something usually reserved for more

affluent families.

 

"For the purposes of this grant, CBC will be working with

the staff and students of Hartford's Fred D. Wish School,

providing bicycle safety instruction in classroom and after

school settings. 'Bike Rights' is a multi-media

presentation about the right ways to ride, maintain and

secure a bicycle. Through other funding sources, CBC is

also able to schedule presentations outside the Northeast

neighborhood. _We encourage schools, Churches, Civic

Organizations and companies in Hartford to contact us about

our free 'BikeRights' presentation..."

BIZ DISTRICT WRONG PLACE TO SELL SMELLY BIKES

According to the Hampden MA Zoning Code Section 6.5,

"The Commercial District is intended to provide for goods

and services for transients or tourists, and non-consumer

goods and services." Under subsection 2, "The following

uses [are] permitted by special permit of the Board of

Appeals... based on satisfaction that said use is

appropriate and that it will not create a nuisance by

virtue of noise, odor, smoke, vibration, traffic generated

or unsightliness." And, subsubsection 4. mentions

"Salesrooms for automobiles, bicycles, boats, farm

implements and similar equipment" So to start a bike shop

in Hampden's Commercial District, you need a special permit

and must prove you won't create noise, odor, smoke, etc.?

Hmmm...

THE TRANS CANADA TRAIL

According to the project's website, "The Trans Canada

Trail will be a shared-use recreation Trail that will wind

its way through every province and territory. It will be

the longest trail of its kind in the world, spanning

approximately 16,000 kilometres.

 

"The Trail will accommodate five core activities: walking,

cycling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and

snowmobiling (where possible/desired)."

N.C. CITIES TO GET "RED LIGHT CAMERAS"

According to the Peek Traffic Inc. website, "Peek

Traffic has been awarded separate contracts from the Cities

of Greensboro and High Point, North Carolina to provide

turnkey red light enforcement services in an effort to

improve safety at signalized intersections throughout both

communities.

 

"These automated enforcement contracts are three years in

duration and include the supply and installation of red

light enforcement cameras to the processing and mailing of

citations. 'Peek installed the first Peek GuardianR fully

digital automated enforcement system in the City of

Wilmington, North Carolina. Since then, the SafeLight

(Wilmington) programme has successfully achieved a

reduction in red light violations of more than 40%,'

according to Ian Cardozo, Director of Peek Automated

Enforcement Systems. 'Red-light enforcement programmes, in

conjunction with a high profile public relations campaign,

have been proven to modify driver behavior,' he said. The

Cities of Greensboro and High Point intend to accomplish a

reduction in red light violations and accidents at

intersections and modify driver behavior over and beyond

the duration of these contracts.

 

"Several other Cities and States throughout the United

States plan to follow North Carolina's lead in deploying

digital automated enforcement programs. A recent study

released by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety

indicates that 200,000 injuries and 800 deaths occur each

year caused by red-light related crashes..."

WISDOT DRAFT PED PLAN AVAILABLE

According to a March 11th article in the Milwaukee

Journal Sentinel, "The Department of Transportation, the

state agency usually associated with driver's licenses and

highway construction, has drafted a 20-year plan for

improving a more traditional form of transportation:

walking.

 

"The Wisconsin State Pedestrian Plan stresses ways to

increase the number of walkways in the state and to make

walking safer. Benefits of encouraging people to walk

include fitness and decreased vehicle emissions, and

walkways add social and economic value to communities, the

draft says.

 

"If people want to walk, they should be able to, whether

it's for health or transportation," said John Swissler, a

program analyst in the department's Bureau of Planning. The

pedestrian proposal includes working with local officials

to make sure that roads and county highways include safe

places for pedestrians. 'We kept hearing that a lot of time

local officials don't know what to do. They know what to do

for a road, and it's not that they hate walkers or

anything, but they don't know what techniques are a

vailable,' Swissler said.

 

"The proposal also calls on the department to study

pedestrian accident statistics and find ways to reduce

crashes involving pedestrians, including enforcing lower

speed limits where pedestrian traffic is heavy. In

Wisconsin, there were 55 traffic accidents that included

pedestrians in 1999, and about 80% of such crashes occur

where the posted traffic speed is 25 mph or less, according

to the department..."

NEW TRAIL PLANNED FOR ATLANTA

According to a story in the Mar. 12th issue of the

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "...The Atlanta Bureau of

Planning envisions a Cultural Ring trail along 14.9 miles

of [an abondoned] rail line, extending south from Ansley

Mall along Piedmont Park, curving around Zoo Atlanta, then

circling back up along Washington Park to the Georgia World

Congress Center.

 

"The city has received an $800,000 grant to develop a

section of trail from Washington Park to Metropolitan

Avenue.

 

"The Georgia Department of Transportation wants to reserve

part of the existing rail line for future rail use. The

city's idea is to include a greenway trail alongside a

trolley or some type of passenger rail that could connect

to MARTA..."

NEW LITTLE ROCK BIKE/PED BRIDGE IN WORKS

According to a Mar. 15th story in the Arkansas

Democrat-Gazette, "Solid waste managers, park officials and

a county judge gathered Wednesday beside the water pouring

furiously through Murray Lock and Dam to envision the

bicycle bridge that would eventually hang above them.

Pulaski County Judge Buddy Villines handed a $485,000

cardboard check to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to

design the bridge, which would span the lock and dam,

connecting trails in North Little Rock and Little Rock as

early as next year.

 

The county's check will pay for the Corps' design study --

the first step in making the bridge a reality. Once built,

the bridge would be a major step in completing the 14-mile

trail system along both sides of the river. The expanse

will be a fixed structure, approximately 14 feet wide with

safety rails. It would carry bicyclists and pedestrians 30

feet above the dam and 65 feet above the Arkansas River.

The bridge project is expected to cost about $3.9 million,

and funds from Metroplan, the Arkansas Highway and

Transportation Department and the federal government have

been secured..."

SAN JOSE GETS LIGHTED CROSSWALK

According to a March 10th story in the San Jose Mercury

News, "John Wildemuth lifted his toddler son, Brice, onto

his shoulders and stepped into the crosswalk on a

high-speed street. There was no stop sign or no traffic

light. The sun was setting. This could have been suicidal

anywhere else in San Jose, but not here. Wildemuth was

about to walk through the city's first and only lighted

crosswalk. No, I'm not talking about streetlights hanging

from above. I'm talking about 14 lights embedded in the

street alongside the crosswalk.

 

"'They seem to be working pretty well,' Wildemuth said,

'especially at night. They're very dramatic.' He made sure

to step between two odd-looking posts on the sidewalk.

These posts have electric eyes that detect pedestrians and

trip the lights. As he passed through the posts and into

the crosswalk, the lights started flashing directly at

oncoming drivers. The lights work days as well as nights.

Now, I'd say most of the cars were going faster than the 35

mph speed limit, but they all slowed down and stopped cold,

as if the cops had been there. Wildemuth and his son

crossed without a problem..."

BINGHAMPTON (NY) GETS WATERFRONT TRAIL

According to a Mar. 12th story in the Binghampton Press

& Sun Bulletin, "Bicyclists will pedal alongside the

Susquehanna and Chenango rivers as boats and canoes glide

by, families picnic and fishermen struggle to land the big

one. That's the dream Binghamton Mayor Richard A. Bucci has

for the city's waterfront improvement project. But all the

years of dreaming and hoping will become reality in August

when construction is scheduled to start, Bucci said.

 

"'In August, the project will become reality,' Bucci said.

State funds will pay for the estimated $2.8 million

project, Bucci said. Work will begin at Confluence Point

where both rivers meet and will include riverbank

stabilization, construction of an observation deck, stairs

or stone paths to the river's edge, wider foot paths and a

small picnic area..."

BEND (OR) TRANS. PLAN SENT BACK FOR TWEAKING

According to a March 11th story in the Portland

Oregonian, "State officials in Oregon have sent back the

transportation system plan for the town of Bend, saying it

lacks detail about mass transportation, pedestrian and

cycling facilities and how the city will pay for those

things during the next 20 years.

 

"The problem is more a matter of detail than direction,

according to Eric Jacobson, transportation and land-use

planner for the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and

Development. 'I would say largely they succeeded. The plan

on the whole is very good,' Jacobson said.

 

"In 1991, the state started requiring towns of more than

25,000 people to plan for mass transit and alternative

transportation as they reviewed their comprehensive

land-use plans. Salem also is tinkering with its plans

after submitting them. 'It's not unusual for a city

preparing a plan this complicated to have to do some

refinements after we've reviewed it,' Jacobson said. The

state has given Bend until Nov. 29 to revise the plan. ..."

(b) Subsidized parking creates a strong incentive for

employees to commute to work in a single occupancy vehicle.

(c) Commuting in a single occupancy vehicle contributes to

traffic congestion and air pollution.

(d) In Los Angeles and Orange Counties, more than 90
