I support the implementation of the new BikeKC plan. Providing safe alternatives for driving will reduce maintenance obligations and provide more options for those traveling in Kansas City.

Bike lanes keep cars off of pavement. This mean less pavement needs to be replaced, reducing overall system cost. The more biking the less people need to use a car for short trips, also reducing wear and tear on the system. This also reduces overall car use which means more users can utilize a road without widening at great cost.
