4 council members voted against the bike plan and ot has no way to be funded. The plan is just symbolic fluff for the bike voters.
Re: Houston Bike Plan
Just for grins, I went to the official Bike Plan website and found the estimated cost per mile. For the “Full Bike Network” or 1,789 miles, the range is between $335,000,000 and $552,000,000.
Taking the low number of $335,000,000, this comes out to $187,255 per mile. Food for thought. (Reference: Figure 6.14 on Page 6-34)
@ Commenter7: “funding parnters are BikeHouston, Houston Parks Board, Houston-Galveston Area Council, TxDOT, Federal Transit Administration and Federal Highway Administration.”
HoustonReader- How long has it been since you had a big ol bowl of Wolf Brand Chili? Well that’s too long!
This is one big farce to make the Mayor and the council members who voted for it look good.
30 years to carry out a death sentence. Houston, we have a problem.
