Original Draft Maps Disappear from Bike Plan Website, But You Can Still View Them on Streetsblog

6_1_09_bmp.jpgThe original Downtown and Westside Bike Plan Map.

Last night, during an email conversation between myself, Stephen Box, Dr. Alex Thompson, Ted Rogers and Joe Linton; we were discussing the updated Draft Bike Plan now available on the official Bike Plan website.  Linton commented that the original draft maps, the ones that caused such large debate back in June, were no longer available on the website, all that was available was the updated Draft Plan.

However, both Dr. Thompson and Rogers had copies of the maps available on their hard drives; which they emailed to the group and I’ve uploaded to the Streetsblog servers.  Linton noticed that some streets were downgraded from the maps released last June in the current Draft Plan.  However, with the originally released maps no longer available on the official site, it would be nigh impossible for a member of the public to be able to comment intelligently on the differences between the original maps and the ones in the current plan.  So we agreed to help fill that gap.

The updated maps for Draft Bike Plan can be found on pages 5-21 here.

The original map for the Harbor Area can be found on Streetsblog’s servers here.

The original map for the Valley can be found on Streetsblog’s servers here.

The original map for the Westside, Central, and Downtown can be found on Streetsblog’s servers here.

    Can we just refer Ted Rogers as “Mr. Rogers” from now on. It would really make me feel more neighborly.

  • I’ve got to find my “LADOT: Planned But Unfeasible” sticker sheet.

    Has anyone compared the total miles of roadway in 1996 with the total miles of roadway today, and then compared that with the 1996 miles of bikeway and total number of miles of bikeway in the current plan? My guess is that the growth in roadways over the past 13 years has far outpaced bikeways — it seems like the plan for bikeways may have actually decreased over time — and it might be effective to graph it out. If someone has the actual data needed to show this, I’m happy to graph it.

  • learned last week – NYC installed almost 200 miles of bikeways in two years.

  • Not sure when they reappeared… but today large maps are up on the city website:
    http://www.labikeplan.org/bikeway_maps
    and the maps are different than the ones released in May… for example, York Blvd was BFS now it shows as Potential.
