Where cars rule, Jefferson Parish unveils a plan to encourage bicyclists


The wide shopping boulevards lined with parking lots and restaurant drive-throughs. The broad drainage canals that discourage pedestrians crossing. The 10-lane superhighway that roars through it all.

These are evidence that Jefferson Parish, a textbook suburb where cars are king and free parking is a shopper's birthright, grew up in the age of the automobile.

That age might be dying, however. If it does, its death certificate might well be the Jefferson Parish Master Bicycle Plan, a 92-page roadmap of ways to transform Metairie, Marrero and points in between into a haven of dedicated bike lanes and greenways, a place where motorists learn to steer clear of cyclists and the newest residents will be born within reach of a helmet.
