Does anyone have an examples or personal experiences with Bike Lanes or Multi Use Lanes that are separate from the roadway and also separated with a ditch or swale such as this:
path \___/ road = road \___/ path
----- ditch--------------------- ditch
I know that is very rudimentary (thanks Cyburbia for not holding my spaces) but in a rural case here I'm going to attempt to influence the DOT and County Council to pursue a bike/multi use lane. However, I need it to NOT be part of the highway ROW due to the need of realigning the ditches and the associated costs there. But if I can have the path on the far side of the ditch I believe we can make it work. Any rural examples would be greatly appreciated.
