Tier2-3: Bicycle Plan
Office of Sustainability
Has the institution developed a bicycle plan?:
A brief description of the plan:
USF’s Tampa Campus Master Plan has laid the groundwork by containing an adopted Long Range Bicycle Lane Plan and associated policies for the construction of on-road bicycle lanes as part of roadway improvement projects. The Master Plan also contains an adopted Long Range Pedestrian Network and associated policies for the improvement of major pedestrian corridors. (University of South Florida 2005 Campus Master Plan Update, Element 11, Transportation, Figures 11-4 and 11-11 and Goals, Objectives, and Policies, C. Pedestrian and Non-Vehicular Circulation Sub-Element, October 2006, pp. 13-15). These Plans call for enhancing pedestrian corridors with the application of design standards and landscaping from Master Plan Elements 3 and 16, adding pedestrian features at all new improved signalized intersections, and providing convenient bike racks at all new and renovated facilities (University of South Florida Tampa 2005 Campus Master Plan Update, Campus Master Plan Goals, Objectives, and Policies, Chapter 11 Transportation Element, Policies 11A.4.1, 11A.4.2 and 11A.4.3., adopted December 7, 2006). The University has already constructed four miles of bike lanes on campus. Several pedestrian/bike projects have recently been completed and provide connectivity to off-campus neighborhoods: sidewalks and bike lanes on Elm Drive from Bull Run to 50th St., sidewalks and bike lanes on Holly Drive from Maple Drive to 50th St., the shaded western extension of Sessums Pedestrian Mall from Engineering to the new 1,000-bed residence Hall at Magnolia. Additionally, bike racks are being provided with every new building constructed on campus.
