To me, one of the key issues is - does this expenditure fill a demand that justifies the cost?
How many roads have been built to suburbia that served no one until development filled in after the road was long completed?

I know out my way there were roads out to communities in the east counties, and a few homes, but as soon as a freeway went in, the cul-d-sac housing popped up like mushrooms.

The thing about cycling infrastructure is that the demand may not be there today... but in 10 years or so, after yet another run up on oil prices... maybe that 9.2 million will look like a bargain.
