Why we don't see more Bike Infrastructure in Indiana

So you post this so called chart which as a City of Fort Wayne planner you should know to be false.
Road/Bridge projects including Bike/Ped components $0.

These are listed in the 2012-2015 STIP.

Auburn Rd: Cook Rd & Clinton St
Dupont Rd: from Lima Rd (SR 3) to Coldwater Rd
Maplecrest Rd: Lake Ave to State Blvd
All by your employer.

Here just 2 INDOT projects in Allen County.
SR 14: from Scott Rd to West Hamilton Rd
I-69: at SR 1 (Dupont Rd) Interchange

Now tell everyone that you had Zero knowledge of any of these projects when you posted your false report.

First of all David, thanks for reading.
Secondly, I am not a transportation planner. I know that projects are going on but my limited understanding of how projects are funded, what year's money pot they are funded from, etc. limits whether this report could be viewed as "false". This report is for future projects as well, I wouldn't be surprised if Maplecrest is 2010 money. Get it?
Your tone is quite angry, so why don't you get out there and ride your bike. It'll make you feel better.
