IInyo County Active Transportation Plan

Lone Pine Peak

Update The Inyo County LTC funded the creation of  a draft Active Transportation Plan. The goal of this plan is to make local government entities competitive to apply for Active Transportation Program grant funds. The new Active Transportation Program Plan includes:

  1. A minor update of the 2009 Inyo County Collaborative Bikeway Plan.

  2. A Pedestrian Element that will list and prioritize potential projects.

  3. A Recreation Trails Element that will list and prioritize potential projects near area communities.

  4. A Safe Routes to School Element that will update the Safe Routes to Schools maps in the City of Bishop and create Safe Routes to School maps for other areas in the County.

An Initial Study and Proposed Negative Declaration for the Active Transportation Plan has been released for public review and comment. Interested parties are encouraged to comment. The comment period for the Proposed Negative Declaration ends on March 25, 2016. The Inyo County LTC approved the environmental document and adopted the Final Plan at their April 20, 2016 meeting in Independence. The Final Plan can be viewed by following links in the table below.

Inyo County 2008 Collaborative Bikeways Plan Recreational Route Projects

The Bicycle Transportation Account has been made part of the Statewide Active Transportation Program. The Active Transportation Program plan combined several programs including the old Transportation Enhancement Program.

Active Transportation Program Call for Projects

In 2015, the City of Bishop applied for a Spruce Yaney Hanby sidewalk improvement project and the County applied for a Town to Tract Bicyle Route project to install bicycle lanes on Reynolds Road, County Road, School Street, and Baker Creek Road. The City application was successful whil the County's was not. A 2016 call for projects was released in March 2016 and both the City and County applied for new projects though it has not been determined if these applications were successful. .

 

TE History

The County and City were able to program several bicycle and pedestrian projects through the formwer Transportation Enhancement program. The City was able to construct the Pine to Park Path and the County was able to complete a Sunland Drive bicycle lanes project. The County is proceeding with Ed Powers Bicycle lanes project. Caltrans is working toward the implementation of a West Line Street sidewalk project that was primarily funded using TE funds.
