    The trail ends here without any indication of where to go for the next leg. Any sort of signage would help.

    I bike this route frequently and I while the bike may use full lane signs are better than nothing, I think a striped lane would be more appropriate. The biggest pinch points, as noted in another comment are at the traffic calming bumpouts and at the NB i

    Interesting: Your staff refuse to respond to e-mailed questions, and your phones just ring busy

    The 'bumpouts' installed for traffic calming at intersections along Pine Street need a cutout or other method for bikes to get by/through without swerving into traffic.

    I applauded the concept that we would have a bike route along this corridor as I use the corridor a great deal, until I realized that the term "buffered" meant, NOT PROTECTED. If Anchorage drivers see speed limits and stop lights as merely "advisory" wha

    I like the idea of using this artery as a north south corridor. Because there are fewer intersections I could see how it may be a shared road but appropriate stripping/ cyclist lanes should be used at the intersection larger intersections such as Debarr.

    Most everything painted on roads is not visible during most of the year. Anchorage motorists will continue to use Pine and McCarrey for parking, and placing any parking outside a bike lane is going to result in increased injuries to bicyclists

    Your application will not work unless one understands that one has to zoom out max in order to add comments. That is likely why you have so few comments.....

    A buffered approach in Anchorage has never worked to secure the safety of anyone and will not work here. This route requires protected bike lanes and if you are not going to do that, just leave the route alone.

    Overpass is rarely swept. Bike infrastructure is great if it is maintained!

    There should be a bike box here for bikes wanting to cross from Pine Street to the bike trail. There should also be a curb cutout to complete the transition. Often there will be long wait times for a gap to cross Mountain View Drive, and turning traffic

    On street parking often ends up blocking the shoulders and the sidewalks. Lots of intersecting roads and problems with drivers speeding through the neighborhood. There is a proposal to route the bike trail next to McPhee.

    This could be a good idea; it connects the Ship Creek Trail to the Glen Hiway Trail. I take a group of Scouts through this area annually on a 42 mile ride, always something of a challenge!

    This part could be problematic as it is a pretty serious up hill to Fireweed Ln.

    A safe path southbound on C Street will avoid the counterflow situation as commuters head home from downtown on the A Street Bike Trail/Bike Lane. Drivers do not look both ways. Tinted windows make it very dangerous, especially in winter as eye contact i

    Seems like a low-investment and low-return project, with competing adjacent corridors. Most cyclists will choose E/Arctic (better traffic) or A St path (certainly not ideal, but separated and established).

    A bike lane/shoulder here would be the most efficient route out of town for cyclists. There needs to be a high-speed transition over to the Chester Creek Trail. Right now there is a curb which means you have to stop in traffic.

    If I understand "Shoulder Striping" it could work in summer, winter probably not. This section is flat/downhill.
