I’ve been looking through Jersey City’s plan for on-street bicycle facilities. The plan was made public in 2012. It serves as the blueprint for ~60-miles of bike lanes and sharrows that Mayor Fulop has pledged to implement by mid-2014, apparently with a few changes.
Bikas posted the overall Jersey City bike plan document here. Unfortunately, the bike facility map (last page) is a little difficult to make out – so I figured I would input the various segments into an on-line map, hopefully for easier use. The google map of Jersey City’s on-street bike facilities is now on-line here. Hopefully I’ve entered things correctly; if anyone spots discrepancies, let me know and I will correct them.
The plan map (last page here) shows a fairly elaborate 5-part phasing. I left the phasing out of the Google Map. Though the phases are well thought-out and make a lot of sense, it now appears that Mayor Fulop will include all five phases in an initial roughly one-year implementation phase. I did map the distinction between bike lanes and sharrows. Planned bike lanes are shown in green Sharrowed routes in purple. Existing bike lanes (all four streets: Fulton, Grove, Lincoln Park, and Woodlawn) are shown in yellow.
