06 THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1997 TRANSPORTATION THE SALINA JOURNAL Bicycle pitted against auto in race for money Bicyclists hope trail leads to more dollars for bike paths in city of Brotherly Love From staff and wire reports PHILADELPHIA — Despite its name, the City of Brotherly Love is anything but friendly when it comes to bicyclists. As in many of the country's older cities, Philadelphia's streets are dark and narrow and choked with automobiles, taxis and trucks. Raised manhole covers and sunken drainage grates lie in wait as cyclists attempt to maneuver between parked and moving cars, sometimes veering onto crowded sidewalks to escape the hazards of the streets. But Philadelphia officials hope to transform the landscape by building a regional network of bicycle lanes and trails. Drawing heavily on federal transportation funds, they propose establishing bike routes no more than three-quarters of a mile from every city residence, while connecting downtown to deep into the suburbs. "We can reduce, hopefully, congestion, reduce the air pollution that's out there and make the city more livable," said Tom Branigan, the city's bicycle coordinator. But the fate of Philadelphia's plan — and many other bicycle projects across the nation — is tied closely to political currents on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers are scheduled this year to reauthorize the 1991 Intennodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act, or ISTEA. Although most of the $157 billion authorized by the act goes to large-scale transportation projects such as highways and mass transit systems, the law also requires states to spend money on alternative transportation modes, such as bicycle facilities. Philadelphia is using about $3 million of such funds for the first pieces of its bike network, and officials say they would need millions more in the next two decades to bring the plan to completion. Debate could affect Salina's path Salina, too, has used its share of federal funds for a hiking-biking trail on the levee. The city in 1995 completed a 3.1 mile trail from Magnolia Road to Bill Burke Park at a cost of about $260,000. Of the $260,000, about $218,000 came from ISTEA funds, while the city of Salina provided about $42,000. In the long term, city officials envision a 10-mile levee path stretching north from East Magnolia Road through Bill Burke Park and Thomas Park and back south on the levee to Cloud Street. The Salina project is on hold until more federal funds become available. Regardless of how the debate in Washington turns out, completing the Salina project is a possibility. "The city will always consider it," said Shawn O'Leary, Salina's assistant director of engineering and utilities. To get more bicycle path funding, officials from Philadelphia, Salina and other cities will have to fend off highway advocates and many state transportation officials, who are lobbying Congress to give states greater flexibility over how to spend federal transportation funds. "When we look at the current condition of our roads and bridges, and ... we look at the rising death toll on our roads, it's hard to say this is the right time to be diverting money to bike paths," said William Fay, president of the American Highway Users Alliance, an umbrella organization of highway lobbies. Powerful road supporters in both parties would streamline federal transportation funding and do away with some mandated environment-related spending — including the very program that Branigan wants to tap. Bike lobbying groups such as the League of American Bicyclists began the year trying to hold on to the $200 million or more that they get annually in federal transportation funds. Road advocates are not the only ones holding up a cautionary flag to bike-trail funding. Property owners worry about losing rights-of-way if lanes are added for bicyclists, and local officials raise safety concerns. But their objections may be drowned out by the growing popularity of the bicycle. Proposals by President Clinton and Northeastern senators would greatly increase funding for bike projects, and even many road supporters would maintain at least some bicycle funding. Bicyclists have peddled for roads in America since before automobile was invented By DAVID H.OSANSKY Congressional Quarterly WASHINGTON — Bicyclists are pedaling a familiar path this year, as they try to shape the nation's road policy. Bicycle enthusiasts in fact were the original highway lobbyists. In the 1880s, a powerful biking organization called the League of American Wheelmen launched a nationwide campaign that paved the way for the nation's road system. "It was during the period before 1906 that the essential groundwork was laid for a system of road administration capable of adaptation to the needs of the automotive age," wrote Philip Parker Mason in a 1957 University of Michigan dissertation on the early development of roads. "The League of American Wheelmen deserves the greatest share of the credit." This time, a successor organization, the League of American Bicyclists, is working with other cycling groups and environmentalists to press Congress for funds to build bike lanes on many roads. The bicycle advocates, who are competing with highway users for federal money, also want aid to build off-road bike trails and install such accommodations as bicycle racks on buses. Although drivers and bicyclists are in conflict, both owe a lot to the wheelmen of the 19th century. Before the development of bicycles in the 1870s, American roads were derided by one expert as "inferior to those of any other civilized country." Maintained erratically by townships and local road districts, dirt country roads were so rough — and often flooded — that it could cost more to ship goods 30 miles on land than 3,000 miles across the ocean. City roads were only marginally better. At the dawn of the biking boom, enthusiasts had to fight to get onto public roads. Many local governments restricted or barred bicyclists from many roads. But bikers waded readily into the legislative arena. They formed the League of American Wheelmen in 1880 to set up a legal fund and press for access to the roads. Over the next eight years, bicycle lobbyists won legislative and court battles, opening numerous roads, including, most famously, ones in New York's Central Park. . After cresting in the 1890s, the passion for bicycles gave way to a passion for a faster machine: the automobile. League membership, which peaked at 103,000 in 1898, crashed to 3,000 in seven years and melted away after World War I. By the time the administration of President Dwighfr Eisenhower in the 1950s began work on the' interstate highway system, bicycling was. little more than a sport for children. Then the bicycle came back. Today, bicyclists again have a powerful voice, with an estimated 100 million people pedaling at least occasionally. the Salina Journal Toll Free In Kansas Call 1-800-827-6363 Publication Ad Deadline Mon .. .11 a.m., Fri.
