Bicycle Touring Enhancement (TE)


Overview
Produce a map identifying bicycle touring routes on both Whidbey and Camano Islands. Improve shoulders along approximately 1400' of Crescent Harbor Road in front of Crescent Harbor Elementary School. Sign the route from Deception Pass Bridge to the City of Oak Harbor as a "Bike Route".

Why are we Building This Project?
This project is aimed at encouraging multi-modal transportation and supporting our regional and County transportation plans. Island County is becoming a popular cycling destination drawing cyclists from all over the U.S. and Canada. This project provides a complete "Bike Route" from Deception Pass Bridge to the Oak Harbor city limits; it will be the first complete and destination-based "Bike Route" in Island County. The shoulder improvement component makes it possible to sign a complete route by widening shoulders along Crescent Harbor Road that currently do not meet the criteria for signing a "Bike Route". Additionally, the shoulder improvements will enhance the safety of the route students currently use when commuting to and from school from the adjacent neighborhoods.
