SUMMARY OF 1974 BIKEWAY LEGISLATION

A state-by-state compilation of bikeway legislation as introduced through May 1974 as well as a summary of bills carried over from 1973 is presented. Legislators who have introduced bikeway bills are listed. The passage of the 1973 Federal Aid Highway Act and its provisions for 120 million dollars for bikeways over the next three years has made a large impact. Most of the legislation calls for the construction of new bicycling facilities; some deals with feasibility studies and with acquisition and development of land; and a lot of it is concerned with methods of funding. all of it, when enacted, will benefit cyclists enormously, providing them with paths, trails, parking, recreation, and commuter cycling facilities. /DOT/
