Riding the Interstate

        
Most cyclist avoid the interstate when possible, but sometimes that is a desirable or only route. For those interested in the "rules" about riding the big highway, here is a summary that sort of spells it out. Paul Evans gets credit for inspiring me to research this after he got "expelled" from one in Iowa.

I found the following infomation on the website cited below.

"Allowed on all interstates: Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming

Allowed on certain sections of interstate system: New Jersey (Permits granted for particular use and location), North Carolina (DOT may approve opening certain section), Pennsylvania (DOT may approve opening certain section)

Allowed on interstates where no alternative route exists (usually means access is prohibited in urban areas): Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington

Access not expressly prohibited: District of Columbia and Missouri

In all other states, bicyclists are not allowed to ride on interstates. However, even in these states, there are exceptions to this rule where bicyclists are permitted to use a particular bridge that is part of the interstate system (e.g. I-66 in Virginia, I-70 in Kansas)."

Click here for more interesting info and opinions on this subject at the website of Pedestrian and Bicycle Infomation Center, the source for the above info.
