  • Ted Curtis
    Bike/Ped Program Manager
    City of Columbia, MO
    (573) 442-7189 x 25
  • Columbia is a small university city
    Population 100,000 - hills - weather extremes
    Not densely populated: urban area 8 x 8 miles (twice the footprint of San Francisco proper)
    Downtown grid area + urban sprawl + barriers (interstates)
    University of Missouri – 30,000 students
    Bicycle mode share 1.5% +
  • Approach
    Create an integrated, City-wide system
    Add bike lanes wherever possible
    System should be self-explanatory, understandable by bicyclists and motorists
    Where possible, markings for the bike system should be on the street
    Innovate and “borrow” ideas from other cities
  • 2007
    Red: crushed limestone Shared Use Paths
    Blue: Streets with bike lanes
    Red: Shared use Path
    Blue: Lanes
    Brown: Pedways
  • 2010
    Red: 30 miles of Shared Use Paths – (6 miles concrete)
    Blue: 50 miles streets with bike lanes
    Green: 30 miles routes with SLM’s (Sharrows)
  • Bike/Ped Innovations in Columbia, MO
    1. On-Street wayfinding symbols
    2. loop detector markings
    3. BLIP - Bike Lane Infrequent Parking
    4. Programs: early concentration
    5. Pedways, use of sidewalks, intersection treatments
    6. Green Merge areas
    7. Bike Blvd with centered “Advisory” bicycle lanes (bike priority lane)
  • Bike/Ped Innovations in Columbia, MO(Continued)
    8. Buffered Bike Lane: dual stripe on arterial (Stadium)
    9. Bike Climbing Lane: Uphill bike lane, downhill shared lane (Old 63)
    10. 6’7” low clearance culvert underpass (MKT at Flatbranch)
    11. Converting parallel parking to Back-in-Diagonal (Ash street downtown)
  • 1. On-Street Wayfinding
    Wayfinding symbols uses with bike lanes, SLM’s (routes)
    18” thermoplastic on asphalt
    12” “concrete graphics” @
  • Wayfinding for Route on Pedway-sidewalk
    4” symbols for bike routes through campus (6” would be better)
  • 2. Loop Detector indicators
  • 3. BLIP - Bike Lane w/ Infrequent Parking
    Choice is not “parking or no parking” in bike lanes, it is “bike lanes or SLM’s”
    Considered only when parking is infrequent
    Informal assessment of novice riders behavior:
    Before striping: hug curb, swing out around parked cars
    After striping: ride in bike lane (near curb) look before crossing the line into the vehicle lane
    Added benefit: fewer cars park there after striping
    Look behind!
  • Programming: 4 Step Process
    Create Awareness:
    mass media, controversy
    2. Foster Understanding of the program,
    Create positive attitude: mass media
    3. Entice individuals to Try It!
    events, “Personal Travel Planning”
    4. Encourage, Instill change to
    become Normal Behavior –
  • 5. Sidepath - Pedway- Sidewalk
  • 6. MUTCD experiment – green colorations
    Solid Green Bike Lane- used where bike lane extends between thru and right turn lanes: Cars yield to bikes
    GMA – Green Merge Area - used where bike lane ends before intersection: Bikes yield to cars
    Status – first GMA implemented in 2009. Rest in 2010
  • 7. 6’ Advisory Bicycle Lanes on Bike Blvd.
    Heavy “traffic calming” on bike blvd:
    Street murals at several intersections
    Yellow center striping added
    Center 6’ bike lanes created with white skip striping (“Advisory” or “Priority” lane)
    Will have SLM (Sharrows) centered in bike lane
  • Summary
    Public Works Department in charge of Implementation
    Substantial Promotion and Education effort
    Major capital trail and sidewalk projects just over half of budget (and most difficult to implement)
    Bike lanes are the preferred treatment for on-street treatments (considered even when light parking exists)
    Experimenting with approaches – currently just site specific. Determining what should be city-wide treatments
