South Pasadena Implements Bike Master Plan This Month

The plan covers 24 miles of bikeways, and is estimated to got nearly $6 million over the course of 20 years. Adolfo Flores reports.

"The plan seeks to connect bikers to the Gold Line, neighboring cities and the Arroyo Seco bicycle path, said Dennis Woods, transportation manager for South Pasadena.

'It will allow people to see biking as a viable mode versus always driving your car. The plan also sets out that we have to share our streets. Many times people forget,' Woods said.

Plans call for pavement markings, including a 'green lane,' to increase the visibility of bikers. It also includes bicycle boxes -- areas at signalized intersections that place bicyclists in front of cars."
