Downtown Bicycle Study


The bicycle element of the ROCOG Long Range Plan recommended a number of study areas. One high priority was preparation of a Downtown Bicycle Study.

A Bicycle Facility Survey was conducted targeting those who cycle in downtown Rochester. The purpose of the survey was to investigate any deficiencies in bicycle facilities and to identify both key travel routes and existing bicycle friendly routes. Those primary routes were then tested using analytical tools developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) such as the Bicycle Compatibility Index (BCI) and the Bicycle Level of Service Index.

Based on the survey input, the corridor analysis and field review of the corridors, a final plan was developed to establish the most desirable and suitable bike routes in downtown Rochester. The plan also identified improvements to those routes needed to facilitate safe travel.
