    A Bike path outside the guard rail here would be a huge improvement.

    The on-ramp here has almost no shoulder, and what's there is in really poor shape. Simply widening and improving the shoulder would make bike commuting between Badger and Fairbanks safer.

    This will be an ATV speedway and dangerous for bikes and pedestrians. I recommend focusing spending in town as all the out of town bike paths get 10 times as much ATV traffic as bike and pedestrians. Along Badger riding on the shoulder is often safer than using the bike path.

    The Rich has huge shoulders that area great for bikes. The biggest obstacle is getting past the on and off ramps. A short bike path round these obstacles would be a huge improvement.

    A safe crossing for the Skarland trails on Ballaine would be great. Its a great neighborhood connector, just crossings are scary.

    A separated paved, or compacted gravel, would benefit all of those residents in the area who want to bike into work by making it safer. Ballaine is currently pretty narrow, or at least feels that way during traffic.

    A path along Lathrop St to connect the Chena River to the Tanana River, would be really great for recreation as well as connecting those places along Cowles and Lathrop.

    The multi-use path is disconnected through here. It would be nice for a continuous path all the way to Ester, especially considering the fast speed limit of the Parks HWY.

    I wish that "non-motorized users only" was actually enforced on Farmer's Loop. I'd be more inclined to bike, ski, and walk to work on the weekdays if I knew the path wasn't torn up from snowmachines and four-wheelers.

    Biking west on Phillips Field into this intersection is dangerous. You have cars behind you trying to turn right on to the ramp to Peger, and you need to merge through this lane to access the crosswalk on the median. A bike or pedestrian lane and crosswalk across the ramp would help clue motorists into the flow.

    The north side of the road has a narrow shoulder that is often covered in gravel and sand from the winter. A quick sweep would open up a wider shoulder for bikers.

    This bike path has horrible frost heaves and cracks that make biking on it difficult and painful.

    This intersection does not allow bikers to easily turn from Sheep Creek Ext onto the left hand bike path on the Parks Hwy heading South. A pedestrian crosswalk or signage instructing moterists to yield to bikes turning on to the bike path from the right hand side of the road would be helpful.

    This intersection has no bike specific infrastructure to allow bikes to safely turn onto Sheep Creek Ext. road from W Tanana Dr. A pedestrian crossing or other signage would be helpful to allow for safe turns.

    More bike lanes please! Downtown is confusing and thus dangerous. Lack of clear lanes and rules does not help encourage drivers to respect bikers' space.

    I would love to ride out to Tanana lakes park but road is not real bike friendly with large rocks and very dusty. Also there is a fear passing vehicles will kick up rocks.

    The north side bike path is full of breaks and the areas people ride around are getting very soft.

    The sidewalk on the bridge is way too narrow. If there are any other people or bicycles on the bridge you have to wait for them to cross completely before you're able to go.

    Philip's Field Road definitely needs a bike path or sidewalk to feel safer to bike on.

    Would be very helpful for winter commuting if the bike path were maintained beyond Pump House.

    Philips Field is an excellent connection from West Fairbanks to Downtown. It is better for biking after the improvement, but there is still a lot of too fast traffic on this road to feel safe. This would be a perfect place for a bike path.

    Hagelbarger is used as a connection for fast moving cars and bikers. The complete lack of shoulders makes this dangerous for all.

    The pavement is broken badly in this section. Please improve.
