    This bike path is permafrost damaged, loud, and dusty for a bicycle. Wish there was a paved bike path from Creamers to Farmers Loop.

    Very unlevel- large breaks /different kinds of pavement. Cars are looking for oncoming traffic from the left and forget to check the cross walk before merging onto college. Cars Often pull through the crosswalk fast blocking pedestrian /cyclist traffic.suggest a blinking light or cycle/pedestrian sign in the exit.

    Would be nice to have a more graceful way to turn left from Peger to 30th Ave on a bike that doesn't feel like fighting traffic.

    Inconsistent sidewalks between south and north side of Mitchell. Sidewalk disappears awkwardly.

    If riding a bike north on Cushman, crossing in front of the on ramp feels vey dangerous, angry, aggressive drivers especially cause hazard here.

    On a bike, I personally ignore the bike path at this point, and stay on Phillips Field Rd like a car in order to cross Peger Rd. There are few cars, and I can avoid the dangerous and awkward cutting across traffic to make a left.

    The old train tracks (around south side of airport and beyond...) would make an awesome converted walking/biking path. In 30 years of living in a nearby neighborhood, they have never been active. How far they go, I don’t know.

    close to vehicles (except deliveries), displaced parking goes into the springhill lot and big rays lot (springhill to valet to parking garage)

    Lacey street is underused by cars and has terrible sidewalks; turn over to bikes/peds exclusively

    add sidewalks to Minnie street - its the best east west connector north of the river for foot traffic and needs more defined space for bikes, peds and cars to co exist happily

    blind turn is a hazard to cyclists and pedestrians - consider mirror installation

    Suggest construction of a concrete flood wall barrier here (+4' above bike surface) to reduce usage loss periodic flooding and damage due to flooding. The mud and debris deposited is a hazard for users and an additional maintenance load.

    Grade separated sidewalks are desperately needed on both sides of the Old Steese to connect downtown Fairbanks to the commercial areas north of the railroad tracks. How are they not already here?

    Can future non-motorized road plans accommodate, snow machines and 4-wheelers in some deliberate way, that is separate from paved biking and walking paths? This would help reduce wear and tear on areas not designed for motorized, non vehicular, traffic.

    Sidewalks here are covered in gravel, reducing travel area for bikes, skates and boards to 2' of clear width, if not completely occluding the path with gravel. Please consider running sweepers over sidewalks that are adjacent to high speed roads and that see non motorized traffic use.

    The path is not separated from traffic in this section, which makes it hazardous due to the speed limit on the road. This is really dangerous in winter, when vehicles can't see the road lines and often drive on the shoulder.

    The road in front of the school is dangerous for bikes. The Airport Road path coming from the west ends and dumps people out on this road. From there, it is difficult to access the school during the beginning/end of the day, lunch, and during special events.

    This is a horrible intersection. You have to make a left hand turn from the right side of the frontage road, across traffic, to get to the crosswalk across Peger. I've had many close calls here. It is also confusing to figure out how to cross here if you're not familiar with the intersection. I've helped many tourists figure out how to cross here (it's on my daily commute).

    The sidewalk is too narrow here. Bikes are banned from the street, so bikes and pedestrians must share the sidewalk. It is too narrow for bikes/pedestrians to pass each other safely, especially in the winter.
