Have you been wishing and hoping for new bike lanes and trails? Good news — the City of Cleveland announced a new Bikeway Implementation Plan deigned to increase the number of bikeway miles by 250% by the end of 2017.
According to the plan, by the end of 2017 the city will have at least 118 miles of bikeway. Currently the city has 47.5 miles of bikeway (3.71 miles of roads with sharrows, 10.33 miles of bike lanes and 34.6 miles of trails).
“I am excited that we will be connecting every neighborhood to a bikeway network,” said the City of Cleveland’s Chief of Sustainability Jenita McGowan. “We have seen a 200% increase in the number of cyclists in the city since 2007 and this plan will help meet the new demands for bike infrastructure.”
The plan will be introduced to the public Sun 1/19 at the Bike Cleveland annual meeting.
