In 1972 a Bicycle Safety Committee was formed in Orono, Maine, for the purpose of developing bike lanes along the heavily travelled streets in the college community. Approximately one year later the neighboring community of Old Town began considering the feasibility of providing bicycling facilities within their jurisdiction. In an effort to coordinate activities between the two communities and the University of Maine-Orono, a joint Regional Bicycle Committee was established in the Spring of 1976. This report contains the various phases involved in planning, financing, construction and operation of a multiple community bikeway. Also included are public comments and user information received from questionnaires and on-site interviews since the bikeway has been in operation. The bikeway was completed with funds provided by the three communities (Orono, Old Town, University of Maine-Orono), the Maine Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Transportation Bikeway Demonstration Program. /Author/
