As in many communities, inclusion of bicycle infrastructure in roadway projects facing budgetary shortfalls has sparked fierce debate in Corpus Christi, and advocates for bicycle mobility have found it difficult to defend these investments without a strategic plan. The newly adopted Bicycle Mobility Plan alleviates the uncertainty about where bike infrastructure belongs and how much it will cost by:
• Defining a 290-mile Bicycle Mobility Network that will deliver riders within ¼ mile of over 80% of all daycare and academic institutions, groceries and markets, low income housing units, transit stops and stations, and regional parks.
• Providing a detailed infrastructure prescription for every segment of the network, including transitional treatments and specific locations for road diets, lane width reductions, mid-block crossings and other specialized interventions
• Detailing each of the infrastructure types specified in the plan using photogrammetry renderings from representative locations in the community.
The plan also includes 69 innovative best practices and case studies related to education and encouragement programs, supporting infrastructure, policy and code reform and enforcement, and program evaluation.
In a community where dependence on personal automobiles broadens the equity gap and reducing use of personal automobiles may be the only hope for upholding EPA Air Quality Attainment status, this plan will be transformative.
