1 Rochester Downtown Bicycle Study 2009

2 Relationship of ROCOG Long Range Transportation Plan to Rochester Comprehensive Plan Regional Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is prepared under the auspices of ROCOG LRTP is adopted by the city as the Transportation Element of the City s Comprehensive Plan; Downtown Bicycle Study is a refinement of the LRTP focusing on on-street bicycle needs To adopt as part of Comprehensive Plan the Study Report & Recommendations need to be considered at a public hearing by Commission & Council.

3 2005 Adoption of LRTP

4 Relationship of LRTP to Council Work Chapter 4 of the LRTP provides guidelines and policy on roadway development including issues such as right of way width, access spacing, need for auxiliary lanes such turn lanes, where residential collector roads should be considered, etc Chapter 6 of the LRTP provides system development guidance for future bikeways in the urban area, primarily in the form of Map 6-1.

7 Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) ROCOG established BPAC in 2006 BPAC focus is implementation of the recommendations in the Long Range Plan including Providing input to the City & other jurisdictions regarding the programming of bicycle and pedestrian projects Promoting bicycling and walking in Rochester and Olmsted County Outreach to local and regional trail groups, bicycle clubs, youth organizations, and major employers in Rochester and Olmsted County. Lead or participate in Bike/Ped planning studies

8 Downtown Study Scope Highest priority planning study identified in the LRTP was to investigate potential on-road bicycle facilities in downtown Rochester. Initial elements of this project included: Distribution of a Questionnaire targeting current cyclists who use downtown streets Evaluating the bicycle friendliness of street corridors using the Bicycle Compatibility Index (BCI) and Bicycle Level of Service Index developed by FHWA. Focus of study recommendations was to identify a subset of street corridors where bike lanes or bike routes meeting state design standards could be developed that would serve needs of users

9 Key User needs Identified Provide safe bicycle route connections into key destinations in downtown area, such as Mayo bike parking facility Develop routes that would provide for north-south and east-west bicycle travel through the downtown Improve connections from downtown to the existing bike trail network in Rochester.

10 Project dovetails with Other Community Planning Efforts Active Community Planning project partnership between the City of Rochester and Blue Cross / Blue Shield Minnesota Identifying ways to remove barriers and encourage people to increase level of physical activity The 2 nd St Corridor Plan Joint Rochester Area Foundation / City study Considered multi-modal travel opportunities in corridor Resolution adopted by the Rochester City Council in 2005 under the Governor s Fit City Program.

11 Study Report Outline Chapter 1 - Key goals & objectives of the study Chapter 2: Estimates of recreational and nonrecreational bicycle ridership in downtown area of Rochester Chapter 3: Results of Bicycle Compatibility Assessment Chapter 4: Results of Downtown Bicycle Survey

12 Study Report Outline Chapter 5: Review of Design Standards for on-road bikeways Chapter 6: Assessment of Individual Corridor Needs and Feasibility of Improvements Chapter 7: Actions / improvements that could enhance accessibility or increase attractiveness for bike users Chapter 8: Recommended Downtown Bicycle Facility Plan Chapter 9: Implementation costs and Funding sources

13 Census Data on Bike Ridership 68% increase as reported in Place of Work results and a 27% increase reported in Place of Residence results for commuters who bike to work However, less than 1% of workers reported using the bicycle as their mode of travel to work Walking as a mode of travel to work suffered a significant decline between 1990 and 2000.

24 Key Barriers to Bicycling Downtown Lack of bicycle infrastructure including trails or lanes in downtown Rochester Concerns with personal safety Lack of secure bike parking facilities Motorist s aggressive behavior including passing too close to bicyclists Heavy vehicle and bus traffic on arterial roads Snow & Ice conditions in the late fall through early spring Difficulties in navigating intersections (turns) Uneven road surfaces and debris on streets

25 Ranking How Should HOW Bike TO FINANCE Facilities BIKE FACILITIES be Financed? Advertising Endowments Property Tax Surcharge on Parking Corporate Sponsorships Payement Methods Grants Sales Tax Other Ideas

26 Design Standards Corridors assessed for feasibility /ability to meet recommended facility standards in State Bikeway Facility Design Manual

27 Sample Corridor Assessment Corridor Information Sheet includes: Travel Lanes BLOS and BCI Analysis Suggested Bikeway Design Facility Implementation Strategy Potential Benefit of Improvements

28 Bicycle Facility Improvement Options Considered Less intrusive means such as bicycle route designation/ shared lanes Dedicated on-road space such as bike lanes Dedicated on-road space will require reallocation of roadway space impacts travel lane widths Likely to impact on-street parking Shared Travel Lanes Wide Outside Curb Lanes Bike Routes On-Street Bike Lanes
