How will you provide access to more transportation options such as bike and pedestrian infrastructure and public transit?

We need to improve our roads. Lafayette does not need additional bike lines. The high was over 90 degrees Fahrenheit today—I don’t see pedestrian transportation as being practical.

I believe roads should be used for vehicles, and Lafayette has a severe traffic problem. I will focus heavily on increasing the efficiency of traffic for automobiles. Our infrastructure is not designed for additional bike lanes. The downtown area and within the campus of UL may be exceptions. Other than these two areas, I believe the private sector will dictate to developers in individual developments any need for such additional bike/pedestrian transportation options.

The key to strong public transit is maximizing its usability. I will lead an effort to increase ridership on the transit system by improving routes and being more customer-focused. The easiest time to include bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure is at the onset of new infrastructure projects—not retrofitting. We adopted a complete streets at LCG that calls for the inclusion of these types of infrastructure when planning new projects. The best approach after the fact involves being targeted and strategic. The sidewalks downtown are a good example—we need to focus on those areas where demand is highest and where the necessary repairs are most feasible.
