2019 BICYCLE MASTER PLAN: Completed

The Santa Fe MPO and it’s consultant’s work for the Bicycle Master Plan has been approved by the MPO Policy Board as of June 27, 2019. 

The approved 2019 Bicycle Master Plan is available for your review! Refer to the appendices for even more information. All the appendices are valuable, but we are especially pleased to present the Metropolitan Bicycle Design Toolkit!

  • This toolkit is found in Appendix A of the Bicycle Master Plan
    • The purpose of this toolkit is to provide guidance for planning, designing, and operating bicycle facilities in the Santa Fe region of New Mexico. It provides information on infrastructure for bicycle travel in most urban, suburban, and rural contexts.
      • The toolkit is not intended to be a detailed design manual for every situation, but is flexible enough for designs that are context-sensitive while incorporating the needs of all users
    • The toolkit can be used to inform the future development of decision-making policies and design standards for bicycle facilities across the region.
      • It is not regulatory, but  recommendations reflect national best practices for the planning and design of bicycle facilities that accommodate riders of all skill levels.

 

We value your opinion: Did we get it right? Did we miss anything? Any critical and supporting comments will be of value to the planning process!

Appendices

New web-based mapping platform

The Santa Fe MPO is currently updating the 2012 Bicycle Master Plan by including a new web-based mapping platform. This new platform will allow the public and decision makers to identify specific projects (existing/in the works/proposed) identified in the plan. You may seek out a specific project, click on it and view a list of details. Alternatively you may query the site for a project and find it on the map. The map will also have multiple information layers with options to view in street map mode or imagery mode. We will also be updating the list of projects, adding a section on design standards/best management practices and updating the content of the document.

Bikeways Mapping Project

The Bikeways Mapping Project was conducted during the first phase in the development of the Bicycle Master Plan.  The project identifies a system of major multi-use paths and significant roadways that may comprise an “arterial bikeway” system in the MPO area.  Possible improvements to these bikeways, and connections to them and between them, were analyzed and prioritized  with respect to each segment’s contribution toward system connectivity, anticipated local demand basedon land use, specific safety advantages, and feasibility.  The list of priorities for trail and road improvements from this project were finalized during the development of the Master Plan.

After mapping, projects can be prioritized for funding and implementation. The highest priority projects will be accessible for review with member governments so they can be included into the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). . Based on concentrations of high priority projects, high priority pedestrian improvement zones can be designated to complete improvements by geographic area.
