  • § 2310. Pavement of highway shoulders

    (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of section 10c of this title, it is the policy of the State to provide paved shoulders on major State highways with the intent to develop an integrated bicycle route system and make the shoulders safer for pedestrian traffic. This shall not apply to the interstate highway and certain other limited access highways.

    (b) Any construction, or reconstruction, including upgrading and resurfacing projects on these highways, shall maintain or improve existing access and road surface conditions for bicycles and pedestrians along the shoulders of these highways, unless the area is adequately served by bicycle and pedestrian paths that are not located along the shoulders of these highways, or unless the Agency deems it to be cost-prohibitive.
