DOUGLAS BEND PENINSULA
The 2009 Land Use and Transportation Plan contains a section on Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning. Changes have occurred and this page offers recommends relative to this plan.
Proposed Striped Bike Lanes
Contrary to the plan Cages Bend cannot be striped for bike lanes. It is too narrow and has no shoulder. It should be removed from this classification.
RECOMMENDATION: Cages Bend Rd is the only available collector on this peninsula and must be used for bike traffic. Although not included in the Plan, Douglas Bend Rd is a comparable alternative. Both roads have moderate levels of motor traffic, which gets heavy for the morning and evening commute. These roads are not likely to be widened any time in the near future. Both these roads are popular with bicyclists. A low priority option would be to sign both roads for "Shared Use"
