In 1985 the City of Plano began planning at the city level, with other adjacent cities and surrounding counties for an intricate bicycle transportation network using a combination of multi-use recreational trails and city streets. An important part of the current bicycle transportation network is the multi-use recreational trail system. You might be familiar with several of Plano’s trails already: Bluebonnet, Chisholm, Preston Ridge and Santa Fe. However, because trails require a dedicated space, they are typically located on park property.
The on-street bicycle routes will have signage to show bicyclists how to navigate through the city using lower volume roadways. The on-street bicycle route network also includes several arterial roads or portions of arterial roads that are identified as bicycle routes as they are essential to completing connections where no other option is available. Plano’s on-street bicycle routes can be found on this on-street bicycle transportation map. Signs are placed along routes so bicyclists can get the route information as they travel to connect to multi-use recreational trails, schools, libraries, recreation centers, DART bus or rail transit stops, shopping or places of employment. The signage also lets motorists know that bicyclists will be present on those routes.
Guidance signs show the Plano logo, a bicycle symbol and the route number you are on. Some directional signs show which way to turn to intersect with another bicycle route.
Other directional signs show which direction to go, the route number, destination and the mileage remaining to the destination. Texas Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices
