Request for Qualifications (RFQ): Bicycle System Plan Update
The Dallas Bike Plan, first developed in 1985 and last updated in 2011, is the City’s guide for implementing a system of on-street and off-street bicycle facilities, intended to enable and encourage bicycling as a safe, alternative mode of transportation. Dallas was a late-comer to bicycling, and in 2011 had no recorded on-street bicycle facilities. The plan recommended a vast 833 miles of on-street bicycle facilities and 456 miles of off-street facilities including trails. The 2011 Dallas Bike Plan also recommended an ambitious implementation timeframe: for the entire network to be implemented by 2021.
In the 10 years since the adoption of the 2011 Plan, the City has made progress. 84 miles of on-street bicycle facilities have been implemented (up from zero recorded in 2011), and the City’s network of existing and funded trails and off-street bicycle facilities has grown from 130 miles to 174. However, we are far from the goal set by the 2011 Dallas Bike Plan. Also, since 2011, the city has changed drastically. There has been rapid development and densification in the core of the city, leading to increasing competition for the curb space. The City has passed landmark plans and manuals, including the Complete Street Design Manual (2016), the Downtown 360 Plan (2017), an updated Street Design Manual (2019), the Comprehensive Environmental and Climate Action Plan (2020), and most recently the Connect Dallas Strategic Mobility Plan (Connect Dallas) (2021). Combined, these initiatives set the stage for a city that seeks to move towards more environmentally friendly multimodal forms of transportation, and towards a transportation system that enables safe, convenient, and comfortable travel by all modes of transportation.
Through Connect Dallas—which established a transportation decision-making framework intended to be used to prioritize transportation projects for funding—it was recognized that many of the projects and connections recommended in the 2011 Dallas Bike Plan no longer reflected existing conditions, needs, and preferences. An update to the plan was recommended in order to identify future priority projects that make the most sense.
PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
In order to make progress with developing a bicycle system that is connected, convenient, safe, and comfortable, the following objectives have been identified for this Bike Plan Update:
