“Partial Paving:” BCNM’s effort to stop the systematic destruction of bicycle facilities on New Mexico’s state highways
Prepared for National Bike Summit, Washington DC, March 8-11, 2011
ISSUE: In the past decade, the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) has institutionalized the practice of applying partial overlays on New Mexico’s state highways. Today it is difficult to find a highway shoulder in New Mexico that does not have one or more seams posing a significant hazard and inconvenience to bicyclists and other highway users. These seams, along with the failure to maintain shoulders and the frequent use of “rumble strips” that fail to leave sufficient space for use by bicyclists, are a violation of NMDOT’s requirement to provide for multi-modal transportation along highways under state and federal law.
ACTION Item! Highway Funding for bicycle facilities being cut!
Our partners in D.C. are looking out for us. They send us this Action Alert about AASHTO recommending lower priority of bicycle facilites! Who's side are they on anyway?? See here to link to the League's Action page:
