Bike Lanes a la San Francisco / Louisville

Bike Lanes a la San Francisco / Louisville

Mayor Greg Fischer!!  According to Metro Public Works, Louisville has 3047 lane miles of road.  Greg Fischer has touted 28 lane miles, costing $300,000 for bike lane stripping as “major evidence of sustainability”. On a road percentage basis that’s 28 / 3047, which is less than one percent. On a budget basis is far worse $300,000/$528,000,000 = 0.0006 and that’s 0.06%. “Major evidence of sustainability”. Really?
Do any of our lanes look like these?
