GBCI Reviewer Tip

Common issue: School bike lanes extend in one direction from the school entrance to the edge of the property. Often, sidewalks are also used and it is unclear if they are of sufficient width to safely accommodate shared-use traffic including bicycles and pedestrians. Transportation standards, such as AASHTO, recommend shared-use sidewalks to be at least 8-10 feet in width to safely accommodate pedestrians and bicycles.

Suggestions: Ensure that bike lanes extend in two directions from the building to the project entry, i.e. from the school entrance to two different locations along the project boundary. Note that bike lanes with two-way traffic do not count as two directions of bike lanes.
