CDoT upgrading bicycle and scenic byways map
The Colorado Department of Transportation is upgrading its Statewide Bicycle and Scenic Byways map, giving local governments an opportunity to provide cycling information specific to their area.
Initially, bicyclists could go online and review and select state routes to ride throughout Colorado based on shoulder width and traffic volumes. The site also included a search capability for lodging, bike shops, restaurants and other areas of interest. Now, local jurisdictions can add similar cycling information to the site.
“This upgrade is adding another complete dimension to the map,” CDOT’s Bicycle/Pedestrian and Byways Manager Betsy Jacobsen said. “Users will be able to zoom in and find much more detailed information than was originally available. It will also allow local jurisdictions to update their information as they make physical changes to existing facilities.”
Local agencies can access the site and request to be a “trail editor.” Once approved, they can upload their GIS files showing their local trails, routes, bike lanes, etc. Trail editors must be associated with a government agency to be approved.
To access the map, go to dtdapps.coloradodot.info/bike.
