Has the institution developed a bicycle plan?:

A brief description of the plan:

A bicycle plan is outlined in the Parking and Transportation Master Plan it states:

“Bicycle Circulation should be strongly considered in the proposed campus transportation improvements. The overall strategy for encouraging bicycle travel focuses on providing separate facilities for vehicles versus bicycles and pedestrians. These combined trails are also known as greenways, are generally 12’ wide and paved with asphalt to distinguish them from pedestrian only sidewalks."

For further details about the bicycle plan within the Parking and Transportation Master Plan, please see the link below.
