why would we need new signals? Every intersection already has a walk signal facing both directions. Perhaps we could add a 'bike' symbol beside the 'walk' symbol? Ditto for the red stop signal. The car traffic would still be one-way so no extra signals would be needed. I would probably suggest some signs reminding motorists to look both ways before pulling out onto a street, but they should be doing that anyhow in case pedestrians are coming. I know some don't, but some good enforcement would train people to stop and look both ways (amazing that we teach our kids this, but many drivers don't do it themselves) My 'greenway' idea doesn't really have much cost other than for speed humps and bike symbols painted on the roads. I guess the occasion sign too. Overall, I think this is a very cheap plan which would have a dramatic impact.
