123 Miles of Bikeways Installed Since the Adoption of the 2010 Bike Plan

123 miles is about the distance from Los Angeles City Hall to downtown San Diego. Mayor Villaraigosa announced February 21st that it is also the number of bikeways installed by LADOT since the beginning of Bicycle Plan implementation in March 2011. The rate of 61 miles every 12 months is almost eight times as fast as in the last 40 years.

A list of the mileage completed so far this fiscal year can be found here:

As the year moves forward, LADOT will be focusing on adding additional bicycle lanes, more bicycle parking, several bicycle path construction projects, sharrowing more than 22 miles of roads, and installing Bicycle-Friendly Street infrastructure on 4th Street.

We’d like to thank the leadership of Mayor Villaraigosa and the City Council, as well as the city’s many bicycle advocates, for helping to make Los Angeles a more Bicycle Friendly Community.

    Its likely that New York City may have set the record for the amount of bike lanes installed by a U.S. city in a fiscal year with 60.2 miles of bike lanes installed in FY09. They classify barrier protected bike lanes as bike paths and so that adds another 4.1 miles to that, for a total of 64.3 miles of paths and lanes. The LADOT is up to 42.05 miles of bike lanes and paths installed in FY 2012-2013 and there are 16 more weeks to go. Los Angeles is on a pace of bikeway installations for this fiscal year that might exceed those New York City FY09 results.

    Here’s a NYC.gov document that lists the amount of bicycle infrastructure that was installed in the last six fiscal years:
