Anatomy of a Bikeway

What does it take to turn a regular street into a bikeway, or greenway? We hear alot about separated bike lanes, but bikeways (where cyclists share local streets with motorized vehicles and pedestrians) make up most Vancouver's 400 km+ bike network.

There's a new bikeway in the works on Dumfries Street, running from 37th Ave down to 14th Ave. It will connect a couple of major existing bikeways. Jerry Dobrovolny is the Director of Transportation for the City of Vancouver. He explained the process of creating a bikeway, and the physical elements that go into it. Work is underway now and will be gradually completed over the next six months.

Jerry Dobrovolny is pictured below on the future Dumfries Bikeway.
