This year weather killed the cement/asphalt with rapid freezing and thawing which is why many side streets are in such bad shape. We should probably expect this to be normal in coming years.

So, it doesn't matter very much if there are many, or few cars on the road when it comes maintaining the roads. Bicycle lanes won't really change the cost unless we plan on tearing lanes up and planting grass.

We don't have much asphalt in this city which is free of vehicle traffic - but we do have some, and I think that they are illustrative. The waterfront trail between Cootes and Pier 4 and the path from McMaster to Dundas have pavement which is several winters old and see only bike and foot traffic - and both are in great condition.
