The city of La Crosse adopted a Bike/Ped Master Plan November 8th with a vote of 17-0. The process included the work of a steering committee, bicycle and pedestrian workshops in the community, public informational meetings and the work of city staff, T.Y. Lin and International and Yaggy Colby. The result is a document which gives bicyclists and pedestrians hope for more comfortable infrastructure in the city.

With $50,000 in 2013 Capital Budget for implementation, the next step is to form a permanent committee and designate a Bike Ped Coordinator. The following is an abbreviated list of recommendations in the plan:

Identify critical pedestrian crossing and improve with pavement markings, signs, and traffic control devices.
Reduce travel speed on Losey Boulevard and West Avenue to the speed limit
Begin work to create new Bike Boulevards on 17th Street and Farnam Street
Continue planning for a continuous Riverfront Trail
Complete a connected network of on-street bicycle facilities and directional signs in the heart of La Crosse.
