Cambridge Bicycle Master Plan

Cambridge, MA

TDG assisted the City of Cambridge to produce its first comprehensive bicycle plan. This plan will guide future bicycling planning in order to achieve an even higher mode share and to become an “8-80” bicycling city, where all people feel comfortable and safe on bicycles. Using GIS data of street cross-sections, traffic operations, and pavement condition, TDG created a Bicycle Level of Comfort map which rates the present comfort level of streets in the City of Cambridge. TDG also created maps based on available crash data and ridership counts from the City. The plan included recommendations for target level of accommodation for all streets in the City, proposed locations for intersection and spot improvements, cross-sections for standard facility types, and conceptual design alternatives for selected corridors.
