This just looks amazing. The mode separation (it's not everywhere but there's lots), the signage, the pavement markings, the raised crosswalks, the other protected bike lanes (e.g. at 4:30 in the video). Arlington has something to strive for!

And it's a steal at only 63 million dollars!

I note from the video that I saw no bikes in the street with the exception of the bike lane shots. Furthermore, bikes on the trail seemed to average 5 mph. Granted, the terrain in Indianapolis can be quite challenging.:rolleyes:

I know - it's awesome! And of course they had to slow down for the camera. :-)

Agreed that this is great, but as President of RUB, I feel obligated to point out:

- AAAHHH! Careful of the giant steel bollard at 1:57!!!
- And more at 5:05!! - not even centered on the trail.
- And is that a pole in the middle of the trail at 7:55? (Of course, nothing like the enormous streetlight poles at Lynn & Lee. We definitely have them beat on that count.)
