    Huh? This plan has a WHOLE LOT MORE than just infrastructure changes. In fact, it's all of those policies and action items that we think are good. We primarily want the projects strengthened.

    I encourage you to read it. https://commissions.arlingtonva.us/p...working-group/

    Also will add that the plan was adopted with the edits called for through the advocacy campaign, most notably the requirement to use NACTO standards for a low stress bicycle facility when doing projects. The previous language was very soft requirement to provide enhanced facilities which allowed too much discretion to slap sharrows down in an inappropriate area and call it an enhancement.

    That link isn't updated. In fact, I haven't seen the version of the Bike Element that was adopted (i.e. with the changes made at the dias). Any idea when that will be up?

    Ritch told me they were making sure they got the amendments correct and would be publishing soon. I poke him again.
