Why aren’t protected bike lanes included?

Protected bike lanes require additional space to physically separate bikes from automobile traffic. In many cases, the existing right-of-way are not wide enough to accommodate required travels lanes, comfortable sidewalks, and separated bikes lanes. A multi-use trail was considered for Peninsula Drive and W 6th Street but is viewed as a long-term solution due to cost and other factors.
