    The bike path ends here. You can't continue down airport without going all the way around on Boat Street.

    The sidewalk along the entire length of College Road is dangerous for bicyclists. Vehicles turning onto College Road tend to roll past stop signs without checking for pedestrians or cyclists. Riding in the right lane is dangerous for other reasons, namely that vehicle drivers either do not see bicycles or are angered by the inconvenience of having to slow down and pass cyclists. Ideally, College Road would be widened to include bicycle lanes in addition to raised sidewalks for pedestrian use.

    The bike path along Yankovich really needs to be finished, otherwise the work already done is a waste. The path really should be separate from the road to be safe for all users

    The updated section of University Avenue between College Road and Geist/Johansen Expressway is a great example of a bikeable road. However, it is unclear to motorists that the shoulder is intended for bicycles, and I often see vehicles drift over the solid white line into the shoulder. It is also unclear how a cyclist using this lane is supposed to cross the intersection; ideally, the intersection itself would be marked with shoulder/bike lane lines as a visual cue to vehicles that bicycles may be using the shoulder/bike lane to cross the intersection.

    The bike path along Chena Pump crosses numerous residential streets, where cars roll past the stop sign (and thus the bike path) to look for traffic coming from the left. The shoulder along the length of Chena Pump Road should be wide enough for cyclists to maintain a safe distance from vehicle traffic, and should be designated as a bike lane to alert vehicles to the presence of bicycles.

    Would be great for Old Airport Road to connect somehow to East Ramp side of airport so people could cycle fully around. Road dead ends. Would also be great to have access across Mitchell Expressway.

    Would be nice to have access from Hoselton to Dale Rd without accessing busy Airport Road.

    its quite roundabout trying to get to the Johansen or closer to downtown from this neighborhood. A pedestrian crossing over Noyes Slough would make it much more direct

    Very difficult to access the stores on the south side of the road. No safe infrastructure.

    The bike path ends here, but the bike path and the crosswalk are not aligned. This makes it difficult to cross the street and get on to the frontage road without walking or biking in the street.

    There is no way to get from Trainor and Steese to Fred Meyer or Walgreens when walking or biking, especially in winter. No safe way to cross the road here, and no path if you do.

    Nordale needs a better walkway for pedestrians. There is a four wheeler trail, but there is a portion of Nordale from Badger Road to the bridge over the slough where there is no pedestrian/four wheeler trail. Plus the existing trail is hard to access during the winter.

    A general comment. “Bike path” is a misnomer. These non-motorized trails are used by some bikes, especially youngsters, walkers, runners, strollers, and yes, even illegal snowmachines and ATVs. They are extremely dangerous on a road bike because of all the other users and because the cars do not look at the bike path, but sail on through to the stop sign. Because of the misnomer, road bikers are often called out by people who don’t seem to know that is is legal to ride a bike on the (safer) road.

    There should be a non-motorized paved route under this bridge on both sides of the road.

    College Road, in general, needs more pedestrian crossing options. This would be one good spot, but ideally at least every half mile.

    A wider shoulder here would be nice for bikers/walkers connecting from the Sheep Creek trail to the Parks trail. Having in the south side of Sheep Creek Ext would eliminate the crossing at Goldhill.
