New bicycle route maps from the County

The County has a new bike route map for East Volusia. The maps gives you some idea of the speed of the traffic on the routes selected. It would be valuable to have information on which streets/roads have shoulders, but that is not provided. On very busy roads like ISB, riding on the shoulder seems OK, but when the shoulder suddenly disappears, for example when crossing Clyde Morris, ISB is a little too busy to ride on with zero space between the lane and the curb. I want to "take the lane", but on ISB this is pretty scary.
