The Houston Bike Plan Draft is Here

The Houston Bike Plan Draft is Here

Mayor Sylvester Turner has released the draft of the Houston Bike Plan, the next step in the City’s efforts to help make Houston a safer, healthier, and more accessible bicycle-friendly city. This Bike Plan integrates with already planned projects and identifies additional bike facilities needed to achieve safe access to bikeway corridors from more neighborhoods.

The Plan recommends:

  • Creating 328 miles of high-comfort bikeways through modest investments in short-term projects.
  • Adding 86 miles of high-comfort bikeways to connect neighborhoods and activity centers to a city-wide network.
  • Establishing a long-term vision to add 861 miles in high-comfort bikeway facilities as streets are reconstructed.
  • Creating a Bicycle Toolbox incorporating project design approaches, a policy framework, and educational programs.

The City is seeking feedback from Houstonians through April 11, 2016, and will modify the draft Plan based on feedback received from the community.
