TUCSON, AZ (AP) -
Tucson officials are planning to add routes for bicyclists who don't want to ride next to automatic traffic on busy streets.
Construction of bike boulevards could begin this fall under agreements signed by the city and the Regional Transportation Authority.
Bike boulevards are residential streets that are marked by signs and that have signals at busy intersections.
A city transportation coordinator says bike boulevards are intended to provide alternatives to automobiles for short trips.
Ann Chanecka says cyclists who are less confident about riding on streets with heavy automobile traffic need routes that are less stressful.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that the planning process for a master plan for bike boulevards begins next month.
The plan will include routes for parks, schools, libraries, major employers and grocery stores.
