The Lawton MPO has implemented a strategy for introducing bicycling into the community where such recreation/transportation had previously been eschewed in favor of more automobile-friendly improvements. By working to simultaneously provide bicycle infrastructure in the form of a combination of shared lanes (sharrows) and off-street bicycle trails; as well as efforts to relay information to the public through television and print PSAs, face-to-face communications at Open Streets events, and brochures--Lawton is progressing toward a more dynamic transportation network.
The City of OKC Planning Department is finalizing the City’s first bicycle and pedestrian master plan – bikewalkokc. OKC has used a comprehensive process to identify the areas of interest for proposed bicycle and sidewalk improvements. At the same time, OKC has kicked-off a multi-modal transportation safety campaign.
This session will provide discussion on the accomplishments and challenges associated with these efforts.
