    INTRODUCTION Bikeway signage is a cost-effective treatment to improve the City of Milwaukies bicycling environment. This plan is intended to provide the City with a comprehensive guide for the development and implementation of a wayfinding system that will enhance existing and proposed cycling infrastructure. Part 1 of this Plan provides general guidance on signage design including dimensions, color, marking design, and layout of individual signs that is consistent with regional and national standards and describes signing placement standards in the City of Milwaukie, along with potential landmarks and destinations within and around Milwaukie. Part 2 of this Plan provides detailed suggestions for sign locations and signed destinations. BIKEWAY SYSTEM UPDATE Part of this planning process included a review of the existing and proposed bikeway system adopted as part of the 2007 Milwaukie Transportation System Plan (TSP) and identification of potential changes to the Bicycle Master Plan. This review was undertaken to ensure that wayfinding signage provides the best complement possible to the existing and future bikeway system. The proposed changes do not make major modifications to the system, but rather provide clarification to proposed routes or rerouting of proposed future facilities. These changes were proposed by City staff and refined through public comment during development of this Plan. Map 1.1 shows the proposed facility additions and removals. Planned bikeways are characterized as facilities approved during the TSP update; potential facilities have not been adopted into the TSP. It is anticipated that staff will present amendments to the TSP Bicycle Master Plan for City Council adoption sometime in 2009. NEED FOR ENHANCED BIKEWAY SIGNING Signage can serve both wayfinding and safety purposes, including:

    Helping to familiarize users with the bikeway system; Helping users identify the best routes to significant destinations; Helping to address misperceptions about time and distance; and Helping to overcome a barrier to entry for people who do not bicycle often, but who want

    to get started.

    Placing signs throughout the city indicating to bicyclists their direction of travel, the location of destinations, and the riding time/distance to those destinations will make the bicycle system more accessible to all users. Wayfinding signs also provide visual cues to motorists that they are driving along a bicycle route and should use caution. Signs are typically placed at key locations leading to and along bicycle routes, including the intersection of multiple routes. Choosing the right number of signs is important, since having too many road signs can clutter the right-of-way. It is recommended that bikeway signs be posted at a level most visible to bicyclists and pedestrians.
