Danish bicycle superhighway.
How could something like this get built in a US city? And what could an average citizen do to support such efforts?

To be more specific, what exactly is the US process by which something like this could be made? How could it come about? Just a general overview of (or a link to somewhere that explains) the studies, city council meetings, funding sources, and other miscellaneous municipal actions that need to take place to build something like this. Assume we're in a relatively bike-friendly city.
Also, what could a nonspecialist citizen do to draw attention to/enable this process? Getting bikes out of the way of both cars and peds like this seems to be the best option for all three.
