I suspect that the big push for segregated infrastructure in places like Portland, OR comes from the insanely narrow (and door-zoned) bike lanes that their road departments have put in. Such installations create the feeling that bike lanes are dangerous, which theirs are. Where the bike lanes are wider, cycling is much more comfortable.

I also like the fact they are constructing new multi-family buildings with NO parking! It's time we stop building downtown LA with massive parking buildings! It's almost impossible to have a walk able neighborhood when there's this huge 5 story parking garage that takes up half a block.
