Regional Bikeways Plan
The Regional Bikeways Plan is a useful reference and prioritization tool for bikeway projects in Central Indiana. The plan will establish goals and objectives for the regional bikeway network, analyze the network for connectivity gaps and needs, and prioritize planned bikeway projects which can influence project selection for federal funding later on. The Regional Bikeways Plan was last updated in 2015.

Review Plans & Polices and Gather Data
The project team is reviewing the current plan, gathering crash data, and updating the inventory of existing bikeway facilities.
We conducted a survey for the Regional Bikeway Plan update from May 1 - June 21, 2019. We also posted a video about the project and held a live Q&A session on Facebook in mid-May. The survey is now closed while we work to produce a summary, but you can still check out the videos on facebook!
Bicycle Counts & Network Analysis
During Summer 2019 we will be collecting bicycle counts at a limited number of high-crash locations (for bicycles) in the region. This will give us a better idea of how many people are riding in riskier locations. We're also working to produce an analysis of major roadways in the region to identify which roadways are a high priority for bikeway facility investment, based on regional priorities.
