Houston Plans to make "bicycle interstates" out of its utility network!
Houston is filled with roughly 500 miles of high-voltage utility rights-of-way all over the city. These spaces are mostly just dead space, forming ugly islands of weeds between neighborhoods. Alyson Fletcher decided to write her master's thesis at the Cornell University landscape architecture program on what exactly to do with these spaces. Miss Fletcher drafted a proposal to turn these areas into a "recreational super-highway" - and it's starting to look really possible.

This is great! More cities should think about doing this. Too bad so many people are just worried about getting sued..
I think every state should provide cycling lane networks...not the hit or miss lanes we have now that dont even connect to anywhere...it would encourage more commuting by bike and make cycling safer
