    Connecting the bike path to OIT and Skylakes with downtown should definitely be top priority. If this becomes a dedicated multiuse trail, then clearly marked trails should remind users of right away between pedestrians and bikes. It would also be good to have a solid line to designate direction of traffic.

    Please make sure and add sidewalks to Eldorado as there are many people who use this route for walking (including kids) and they are forced to walk on the street.

    Please resurface the bike path to OIT. It is in dire need of repair.

    I bike to work most of the days. This project would make it more comfortable and safe. Thanks.

    Great idea! It is difficult to safely bike to the Moore Park now. I would love to see a protected lane for bicycles leading to the park.

    Thanks for identifying this as a high priority. I would love to see the connection between OC&E and downtown. Protected bike lane would be ideal.

    The path along the A Canal SE of this point needs resurfacing. It's a bumpy ride.

    Suggest making this a high priority project. It's a common route for bikers to access Running Y and Hwy 140.

    A Canal

    The bike path crossing Washburn Way is fine as it currently exist. No need for additional traffic constraints here.

    I live on Old Fort Road and highly recommend upgrading this project to a High Priority Project. This road is popular with bikers and runners. There is no paved shoulder so it's dangerous for bikers and runners.

    A buffered or protected bike lane on Biehn Street is a terrific idea! It would be utilized by many OIT and Sky Lakes commuters, and especially if planters were used as the buffer, would work to enhance the aesthetics of Biehn, stimulating positive growth.

    Especially if a park or plaza is created on the corner of 11th and Klamath, both Klamath and 11th could be a terrific location for a buffered or protected bike lane - many families would likely use it and it could work toward downtown revitalization.

    Spring Street could be a very nice connector and could be a terrific location for a buffered or protected bike lane as the road is already quite wide. Spring Street has the potential to be a quaint street lined by small businesses with a lot of foot traffic and a protected bike lane, especially one with beautiful planters, could help facilitate this positive growth.

    I understand why Lakeshore is a low priority, but creating a buffered or protected bike lane one day could create a stunning asset for our community - one of the most beautiful rides in town, not to mention the slowing of traffic that would result, thereby decreasing the number of collisions between cars and deer

    Possibly the most difficult part to implement. Needs improvements for a safe bicycle/running/walking route; as is, this stretch of road acts as deterrent to those trying to bike or run to Moore Park. Priority level fits the project.

    I suggest bike boulevards here on low speed parallel streets- it's no fun walking/biking on Washburn, even if there is a bike lane.

    I agree that this should be a low priority project- it only benefits a few users, and would be more expensive to implement.

    To echo others, I also think that this is a high priority project- particularly making the S 6th overpass safer for pedestrians and cyclists. Could you consider putting in a PROTECTED multi-use path here? Traffic is zooming by on the overpass and some protection would increase pedestrian/bicyclist usage.

    I think that it should be a higher priority to consider improvements to the Biehn St./Campus Dr./Bus 97 intersection. In the mornings, it feels unsafe with all of the traffic merging from Bus 97 northbound onto Campus Dr. - vehicles are driving 55 mph on Bus 97, and continue the high speed as they merge onto Campus Dr (speed limit 35 mph) and are distracted; not looking for pedestrians in the cross walk there. I wonder if you could put a stop light in BEFORE the merge here to help slow/control traffic. It's a really unsafe intersection for pedestrians and cyclists alike, and gets a fair amount of pedestrian and cyclist traffic.

    Widening the bike lanes would make this feel much safer! Thanks for making it a priority.

    I agree with the other commenter. I was very sad to see that none of the projects on the site discuss improving or creating side walks. OIT and Sky Lakes are large City employers, and it is a real shame (and unsafe) that no one can walk on sidewalks to get from anywhere in Pacific Terrace neighborhood to OIT/Sky Lakes. Please consider making it a high priority to install continuous sidewalks along N El Dorado all the way to Sky Lakes/OIT.

    The sidewalks on Eldorado come and go and are not continuous. It is unsafe for pedestrians of which there are many. Create a consistent sidewalk!

    This is a very difficult intersection for cyclists. Connect the A Canal Trail with Kit Carson in an easier manner.

    I think that this is one of the highest priorities! It is critical to connect the south suburbs to downtown safely!

    Hogback is a beautiful location for hiking and it falls within the UGB, so we should add a trail to the top to the master plan (even if it is a lower priority than the urban core). A trail to the top of Hogback would be a great community asset.
