Could we be creating bike lanes faster and cheaper and so we could have more of them in the Pike District?

Perhaps there are ways we could build bike lanes with greater ease and fewer costs which would allow us to have more bike lanes in the White Flint area … and have them faster!

People for Bikes suggests that “instead of trying to plan something for perfection from the beginning, like you’d need to do if you were building a freeway, cities advance along a spectrum of decreasingly flexible and increasingly durable materials over the course of a decade or so, gradually tweaking a street toward greater safety and comfort and fixing small issues along the way.”  It’s called a quick build, as seen below.

Here’s a comparison of the many different options for bike lanes.  (Who knew there were so many types?) Are there ones in the image belowe that would work in the White Flint area?
