L.A. Finally Updates 37-Year Old Bike Plan

Not updated since 1975, and years in the making, Los Angeles County has finally released a Bike Master Plan, available now for review.

Damien Newton takes a first look at the new plan:

"The new BMP proposes a much expanded network on county controlled land including unincorporated areas such as Marina del Rey and the land along various rivers, creeks, and flood control facilities. While advocates are just beginning to delve into the plan, previous versions have come under heavy scrutiny for being too vague in areas and not proposing enough bicycle lanes, bicycle boulevards (still called bike friendly streets for some reason), and Sharrowed Streets."

The complete draft plan is available here. (PDF)
